Diamond Jubilee Exhibition at the V&A

Photo: Cecil Beaton 1960 
If you weren't aware of it, there is currently an exhibition at the V&A featuring portraits of Queen Elizabeth II by royal photographer Cecil Beaton. The exhibition celebrates Her Majesty in her roles as princess, monarch and mother and coincides with the 60th anniversary of her accession to the throne.

You can read more about it and see some of Beaton's amazing (and iconic) images here:

If you were wondering if this was just a pleasant public information announcement, you'd be wrong!  I thought I would use it as an opportunity to show the lovely posters produced for the exhibition which are printed on our lovely Omnia 150gsm and which (as you can see below) faithfully reproduces Cecil Beaton's work...
The other thing to point out is that the image is "gold laden" and even though an uncoated feel was required Omnia was chosen because of the way images reproduce - including gold made out of CMYK (not specials) and still look gold, whereas on other uncoated papers it would just look a bit mustardy brown! (in my opinion). The poster size is 510x760mm.
Design is by the V&A in house studio. Print is by Principal Colour.
...and you'd better hurry as the exhibition ends on 22nd April.
