Auction of prints by Sex Pistols artist Jamie Reid to fund Kensal Rise Library campaign takes place today

Limited Edition pieces by legendary artist will become collector’s items

A series of limited-edition prints will be auctioned off to raise funds for the campaign to save Kensal Rise Library will be taking place this evening (Friday).

Legendary artist, Jamie Reid, who created the Sex Pistols’ album cover for God Save the Queen, has designed and donated 200 signed limited edition prints to the crusade.

The prints will be sold for �30 each at the Masons Arms, in Harrow Road, Kensal Green on February 3.

The prints were on display in Los Angeles where they were being used to highlight the plight of British libraries following government cuts.

Margaret Bailey, who is part of campaign group Brent SOS Libraries, said: “We are absolutely delighted about the prints Jamie has designed, signed and so generously donated to us.

“The prints will be a very permanent reminder of the strength and commitment of so many people, and Jamie’s gift is testimony to that. The continued support for our campaign is truly heartening.”
