Run of the Jill - limited edition prints from iconic artist!

It's an old complaint these days but back when vinyl was the dominant format there were some truly stunning album and single covers. One of my personal favourites was this little beauty above. Neat eh? On a whim I did a bit of digging around online a year or two ago to see who'd drawn it and discovered it was someone called Jill Mumford. It turns out that Jill was also responsible for sleeves for The Jam. Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Who, Rip Rig and Panic and XTC along with spreads for NME, Melody Maker and Straight No Chaser. Now you can grab signed and numbered limited edition prints of some of these designs (including stuff for Siouxsie and the Banshees, PiL, Beastie Boys and a great one called The Last Supper of Funk) for just £60-£70 + P&P. They should sell out faster than hot cakes and will no doubt end up changing hands for hundreds on eBay so consider this a bit of a heads up!
