A limited edition screenprint created for the National Theatre's adaptation of Neil Gaiman's The Ocean at the End of the Lane.

Paris-based artist Nicolas Delort creates striking graphic illustrations, primarily on scratchboard. When we saw his artwork for Joel Horwood's stage adaptation of Neil Gaiman's novel, we loved it so much we commissioned The Private Press in Brighton, working with the National Theatre Graphic Design Studio, to create a unique piece of art.

Printed with specialist fluorescent inks to emphasise the dramatic colours and chiaroscuro in the original artwork, this print makes a striking impression. Printed using high quality hand-pulled screenprinting techniques focusing on quality and meticulous attention to detail.

Signed by the artist Nicolas Delort
