Reproductions of Perry’s work are of the highest quality. The reproduction process is as follows:
Perry draws his originals on watercolour paper in Indian ink, walnut extract, watercolours and powdered pigments.
Each original is photographed professionally in a studio set up specifically for this purpose, using high-powered strobe lighting and a top-end Hasselblad digital camera. A single digital image is approximately 60MB large and can be reproduced to the size of a large advertising billboard without loss of quality.
Once photographed, the digital image is opened in Photoshop and adjusted to match the original, based upon the type of paper it will be printed upon; each paper type absorbs ink to differing degrees, thus making colours slightly more, or less brilliant.
The giclée prints are reproduced on acid-free art paper, using a professional inkjet printer with 8 inks. The word “giclée,” is a Fine Art term for a print using fade-resistant, archival inks. This increases the colour range and allows smoother gradient transitions than those possible with traditional lithography. Giclées are now commonly used by museums and art galleries.
Perry’s prints are reproduced on two types of paper
- Satin finish 240 gm white art paper, used for all of his open edition prints.
- Fine art paper 100% cotton rag 240 gm, used for all of his limited edition prints
Canvas prints are now also available. Delivered already stretched on a mount.
Limited edtion prints
A selection of Perry Taylor's drawings are available as limited edition giclée prints. Unlike an 'open edition' which can be reproduced by the artist as many times as he wants, a limited edition has more value for collectors since there are only 150 examples. Printed on Somerset Velvet 250 grams fine art paper, each one is numbered and signed by the artist.
Dimensions of the paper approximately 42 cm x 30 cm. Image size is approximately 37 cm x 27 cm
Limited edition prints are delivered in a sealed, waterproof plastic sleeve and rolled in a cardboard tube.

A signed dedication by the artist increases the value of a print. If you would like Perry to add a dedication to your reproduction, please write the text you require in the 'Comments' window when ordering a print.
Keep your dedication, short and to the point, since only a single line of text is possible.
This 'added extra' is free for the moment, but in the future, a small charge will be adde
