‘In 2012,  I was asked to recreate the engravings from the circus poster that inspired John Lennon to write the song “For The Benefit Of Mr Kite”. The poster is for sale as a very expensive letterpress recreation of the original; the making of it was also the subject of a short film. This is one of my final proofs of the engravings. I no longer have the engraved blocks making this one of the rarest of my works.’ Andy English
