Some big art names have been working with UK-based magazine The Big Issue recently. With limited edition releases from the likes of Ben Eine, aimed at giving the homeless a helping hand up, the collaborations have culminated in a group exhibition at Jealous Gallery, London, entitled ‘Tipping Point”.
It’s been a long time coming… We’ve chased Martha from New York to Berlin, Miami to South America and finally, we are proud to bring you the Martha Cooper x VNA Limited Edition box set.
We’ve sourced paper, run test prints and bounced proofs back and forth over the course of 6 months to produce an amazingly detailed black & white screen-print of one of Martha’s photos on the cover of issue 34.
It’s taken us a while to confirm all the components of this set (an edition of /150) – from the special signature camera pin badge, to the screen-printed cover and lovingly signed photo prints – and both ours and Martha’s quality control has been super high throughout – there is even an exclusive list included in each set with caption details of each of Martha’s images in the magazine.
We’d like to thank Martha publicly for her assistance and co-operation throughout this lengthy and difficult process, as well as special shouts to Louis @ Spraying Bricks, Nina @Joshua Liner Gallery, Rik @ Ripe Digital and Joshua @ White Duck Screen Print – without whom this would not have come together.
So now, the wait is over, the prints are signed, the sets are numbered and the boxes are packed and they are finally available to buy exclusively, online, from 2pm GMT time today.
Get your set before they disappear!

YNH X REBECCA CLEAL – You’re Not Human will present a unique exhibition featuring a series of new works by photographer and print-maker Rebecca Cleal on Saturday 8th October at The Old Coroners Court, Bristol, 7-10pm.
The culmination of a 3 year collaborative relationship between Rebecca Cleal & You’re Not Human, this exhibition of screen printed photography celebrates the darker side of Bristol’s music scene. Whilst You’re Not Human are well known for their heavy and uncompromising contribution to the live music landscape of Bristol, it’s Rebecca’s photographic documentation of the events that has given a distinct sense of shape and presence to the scene outside the performances themselves.
