The Specials album poster from yesteryear recreated

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

Someone asked about The Specials Album quad poster and have re-produced it on a matt poster paper for him. Really delighted how this has reproduced. Took a bit of work and retouching and not looking like those cheap scan jobs on eBay. So this Teflon poster design rides again and available now directly from me or soon online www.2toneposters.co.uk… and signed .

Opportunity on eBay for some 2 Tone history

Sunday, September 25th, 2011

Currently on eBay there are a few days left with a unique opportunity to bid and buy a bit of  2 Tone History by designer John Sims aka Teflon and his involvement with the black and white rude boy design work of 2 Tone, The Specials, The Selecter, Madness, Bodysnatchers,  Dance Craze plus some hand written memorabilia etc. There are 4 history banners plus the Nutty dancer available. These are a 1 metre x half a metre PVC hemmed limited edition digital print and signed by the designer. Part of the This Art 2 Tone exhibition displays (www2toneposters.co.uk) but at the smaller size print.  They have small brass eyelet at each top corner for wall hanging. Bid and buy… once they gone they are gone.

Sunday, September 11th, 2011

Kathy Burke has a follow up to “Little Crackers” sketch for Channel 4 and supplying some more 2 Tone posters. Some really large flyposters of this old advert designed for Melody Maker June 23rd 1979 so look out for these when the sketch is aired later on around Christmas or just after. Could be available on the 2 Tone Posters website after the revamp :-)
