Dr Who has entered the world of art collection with the launch of limited-edition prints from the series. Created by Department Six in a license from BBC Worldwide, the artwork brings original designs from the show to life in limited-edition prints of archival quality.
Ten images are available initially including Dalek DNA, The Master’s Ring, The Doctor’s Fob Watch, and Santa Masks from last year’s Christmas special. Future releases will include The Tardis, The Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver, and Gallifreyan text.
Each print run is limited to 500 giclee editions, which will be numbered and signed by the artists who created the original designs. The prints will be delivered with an accompanying certificate of authenticity. Each print is hand-mounted and wrapped in a fine tissue paper overprinted with Gallifreyan text and shielded by a custom made foam lined box.
Edward Thomas, Department Six chairman says, “We were keen to develop artwork that allowed the incredible talent captured in the images to be appreciated by future generations. The intricacy and care put in to the prints makes them must-haves for collectors, and for a wider audience appreciative of the magic of this treasured television series.”
