Thank you to everyone for your patience and support with this amazing project. It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with Jamie, and the Derby County fans commitment to the club is truly infectious.

We Are Derby is drying and is almost ready for delivery / collection! Once dried, Chris and Jamie will sign each print and then they’ll be whizzing off to their new homes. For those who’ve opted for their original and very limited edition print to be framed, they will be ready for collection in a week or two and we will continue to update on the timescale… rest assured, it will most certainly be worth the wait!

For those of you who’d like to hear Jamie perform his poem, join us at The Smallprint Company studio on Friday 22 March at 6pm for a 6.30pm reading (we’re next door to Annie’s Burger Shack, if you need a pointer!).

If you would like to join us at this event collect and view the studio where it was made, please RSVP through this link (it’s a free event but we need to know how many to expect!).

Can’t make the evening performance? Unframed prints will be available to collect from 1pm on Friday 22 March.

We can’t wait! It’s going to be electric!

In the meantime, cast your eye on these videos of Chris printing the poem. We recommend viewing with the sound on to appreciate the Victorian mechanism of our Squintani Model no 6, a 135 year old treadle press.

    We would love hear Jamie deliver his poem having enjoyed it on a number of occasions at Pride Park.

    Nothing greater than collecting the print whilst getting a smell of the ink on the press…oh ..and Jamies live rendition.
