We Are Derby – a poem by Jamie Thrasivoulou

Letterpress Poster Print

We’re really pleased to be working in collaboration with poet Jamie Thrasivoulou in creating a limited edition print of his poem We are Derby.

The poem We Are Derby is inspired by the people and heritage of Derby, Derbyshire and his shared love of Derby County Football Club. The piece is the official Derby County poem and has appeared on the big screen at Pride Park stadium since August 2018. Jamie also performed the poem live on the pitch at the inaugural East Midlands derby against Nottingham Forest in December 2018.

Chris is currently working on typesetting the print which will be hand printed in black ink on acid free cotton paper using a mix of original wood and metal type.

Picking type

 


Jamie will also be doing an intimate live recital of the poem at the studio to celebrate the release; buyers will be welcomed along to pick up their print in person and view the studio space. More information will become available upon completion of the project.


This original letterpress edition is limited to 150 COPIES ONLY and each print will be individually signed and numbered. It is currently in production and is available to pre-order here.

As production progresses we will add more photos – so watch this space!
