Made in Britain
A digital version of the original Shipping Forecast print commissioned to hang in Rick Stein and Jill Stein’s The Seafood Restaurant, Padstow.
The Shipping Forecast names the British sea areas covered by daily BBC radio broadcasts on behalf of the Meteorological Office: Viking, North Utsire, South Utsire, Forties, Cromarty Forth, Tyne, Dogger, Fisher... Ideal for the Radio 4 listener, the sailor, the gardener, the angler or anyone who else who pays keen attention to the weather!
The original Shipping Forecast print was produced using vintage wood and metal type and printed on a vintage letterpress. An original has been professionally scanned and digitally enhanced and the digitally printed with a beautifully weathered feel. This is a magnificent feature on any wall.
150cm long version
Printed in the UK by giclée in sea greens and blues onto 300gsm cotton paper as a continuous roll. Supplied unframed.
Size: 150cm x 26cm. (153cm x 29cm framed). The print comes in both framed and unframed versions. Our frames are made by a local picture framing company who offer conscientious attention to detail to this bespoke size. Recently we have started framing the Shipping Forecast print in solid Ash wood with a limed wax finish to give a lovely driftwood feel (frame width 1 inch/ 2.54cm).
