This years gorgeous Fish Festival prints from @PirripPress

Former Penzance designers Pirrip Press have again produced a pair of dazzling designs to help raise money for the Newlyn Fish Festival charities.
The two woman design team, who moved to Bristol two years ago, still maintain strong links in Penwith and donate part of their prints' profits to the festival as well as displaying their skills on the day.
In 2012 they were in Leth Gallery live printing and last year they had a stall on the festival site.
This year they have a fresh pair of designs to commemorate the 2014 festival.

The first print is a two colour tour of the sights of Newlyn.
Alexandra Higlett said: "We enjoyed sitting down and making lists of all the buildings around the town - spot the Lovell’s broccoli & bean, the Mission’s clock-top,
and the shadows on the ice tower. Top marks to anyone who identifies them all first go!

"The second print is a montage of imagery inspired by the sea and the Fisherman that work out of Newyln.
Georgina Hounsome said: "We liked exploring the patterns and shapes of fish and sea and making the Fisherman’s Sou’Wester just that spot
on shade of yellow. Both the posters are silkscreen printed by hand, and they’re in a limited edition of
just 100 each.
"We sold out of all the 2012 and the majority of the 2013 prints, so we’re really hoping to match that this
Each print costs £10 with £2 going directly to the Festival Committee to distribute to charity.
The prints will be on sale from the Pirrip Press stand on the North Pier or you can reserve or order online at
