See a new commission, made for Kettle’s Yard, by Peter Coffin in the lift.

Coffin has created a poster for an imaginary concert this summer in the style of Colby Poster Printing Co., a Los Angeles print shop (closed 2012), famous for its iconic and vibrant ‘show print’ posters.

A limited edition print will be available to buy in the shop.

With thanks to Kip Gresham and the Cambridge Print Studio.
