UK speaker designer Phil Ward, who has worked for MordauntShort, Canon Audio and Naim, has released a limited-edition series of prints called Audio Icons, inspired by classic British hi-fi products from the 1970s and 1980s. Audio Icons kicked off with editions illustrating six iconic amplifiers and nine iconic speakers. Planned future editions include turntables, a second collection of speakers, a second collection of amplifiers, and complete hi-fi systems. Editions will be limited to 100 with each print signed and numbered. ‘ The illustrations that comprise Audio Icons are created by using a variety of digital techniques and based on a combination of personal experience, photographic research and manufacturer’s data,’ said Ward. ‘ The illustrations portray each product as accurately as possible while at the same time capturing their unique personality and the extraordinary creativity, engineering skill and enthusiasm that went into each one.’ The 332×484mm (13” × 19”) prints are made on high-quality 200gsm fine art paper and are supplied rolled and ready for framing. Prints retail at £60 each including postage (in the UK and EU).
