    This monumental limited edition print by Peter Blake is a silkscreen with glazes on beautiful fine art paper. The work is a special limited edition print created in collaboration with ‘The Beano’ to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the iconic British comic. Peter Blake’s print focuses on the ‘Bash Street Kids’ comic strip, which was devised by Beano editor George Moonie in 1954. The image recreates an imaginary view from Moonie’s Beano office in Dundee, Scotland. The backdrop is the imposing Dundee High School, but the schoolchildren have been appropriately replaced by a collage of cut-out epochal comic strip characters.  All of the major Beano characters appear in the work, including Dennis the Menace, Gnasher, Billy Wizz, Lord Snooty and Minnie the Minx. This fantastic print typifies the exuberance and fun of Blake’s Pop Art, illustrating some his key themes such as childhood, nostalgia, and popular ephemera.
