Piper Gates Design has always been a fan of the movie tie in, in fact 1978 would have been a much poorer year without Star Wars figures. Bearing that in mind the Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy poster from last year has been amended and now released as a 30 x 40 cm (12" x 16" approx) poster to tie in with the movie release. Inspired by the opening titles of the iconic 1979 BBC adaptation this poster features the 'grumpy' Russian Doll rendered in the Swiss Graphic Design style. This is limited to 25 copies and printed on very high quality 200 gram silk paper. Available here

Still looking into the world of all things 'lost novel' it was decided to recreate the design of a Piccolo television tie in book. With this in mind a decision was taken to 'reissue' the Ace of Wands novel to see what it would look like within this context.

Continuing the recreation of analogue printing effects in the digital age it was decided to use cult tv favourite Ace Of Wands as the subject for the latest 'lost novel'. Inspiration came from Bruce Robertson's cover for the penguin book 'Scootering' with a hint of the sleeve of Tangerine Dream's Electronic Meditation to create the counter culture occultism of the subject matter. A limited edition of 15 copies signed are available here
