Limited Edition Prints from Doctor Who Designers
For the first time fans and art collectors will be able to purchase artwork inspired by the BBCâ€™s flagship television series Doctor Who. The limited edition prints created for the latest series went on sale today at www.departmentsix.com.
Created by Department Six and licensed by BBC Worldwide, the artwork brings original designs from the show to life in limited edition prints of archival quality. Ten images will be available initially including Dalek DNA, The Masterâ€™s Ring, The Doctorâ€™s Fob Watch and the Santa Masks from last yearâ€™s Christmas special. Future releases will include The Tardis, The Doctorâ€™s Sonic Screwdriver and Gallifreyan text.
Each print run will be strictly limited to 500 giclee editions which will be numbered and signed by the artists who created the original designs. The individual prints will also be delivered with an accompanying certificate of authenticity. Carefully presented to ensure collectability and longevity, each print is hand-mounted and wrapped in a fine tissue paper overprinted with Gallifreyan text and shielded by a custom made foam lined box.
Edward Thomas, Department Six Chairman said: “We were keen to develop artwork that allowed the incredible talent captured in the images to be appreciated by future generations. The intricacy and care put in to the prints makes them not only must-haves for collectors but for a wider audience appreciative of the magic of this treasured television series.”
