The Famous Tay Whale

Hits: 2042

'The Famous Tay Whale' is the first in a series of original artworks interpreting the unique literary style of McGonagall. Once described as the 'world's worst poet', these artworks celebrate the wit and charm of one of Dundee's most prolific sons.

The original artwork was created through the medium of linoleum reduction printing, with the text of the poem being hand pressed on top of the background with vintage metal type. The prints are reproduced onto canvas which adds a lovely toothy texture to the finished artwork.


The prints are approximately 50cm x 100cm, and can either be supplied rolled in a poster tube for DIY framing, or custom framed (complete with a mount) and delivered to your door. The frames are custom made locally to order and made of dark solid wood, with a natural mount.
