Limited edition poster! The Epic Friday Night Travels of Norman McNorman

Posted 23rd Apr 10 by Tom in News

“This is the story of Norman McNorman
(an Edward Woodward of a name)
Who changed his life one Friday night
On his way back home from a hopscotch game.”

mcmillan1All the words submitted to the Chip Shop over the course of the festival were packed off and sent to poet extraordinaire Ian McMillan, who used them all and turned out this masterpiece. If you missed out on Ian’s performance of the official London Word Festival 2010 poem, fret not! as you can take a copy home today. Courtesy of the screenprinting genius of the Henningham Family Press, we are making available this beautiful limited edition A3 poster. Printed on 270gsm Bread and Butter paper, this would make a poetic addition to any bedroom or living room wall. Hey, you could even put it in the kitchen…
