Here’s a video that gives you a flavour of what the boxed set is all about. It was taken at the launch event in Glasgow.

Exactly 123 years to the day after Brother Walfrid sat in that hall at St. Mary’s, Calton, in 1887, and founded Celtic F.C.

You may recognise a few of the interviewees.

The Detail

If you’re still reading at this point, you’ll want to know the full sp on this beautiful boxed set.

I recently was mugged by the emotion of it all again when I watched a documentary, beautifully narrated by Peter Mullan, on the life and times of Brother Walfrid.

The bespoke luxury covered presentation box with twin opening lids contains a numbered A3 museum quality art print – signed and numbered by Peter Howson. An accompanying hologrammed certificate of authenticity. And a unique 60-minute documentary DVD following the life and legacy of Brother Walfrid narrated by award-winning actor and director Peter Mullan.

Plus an in-depth exploration of the causes of the Irish famine, featuring interviews with experts such as Professor Sir Tom Devine.

All of this is presented in a hand-made luxury bespoke box, one in an edition of only 1,888 (the year Celtic played their first match, against Rangers).

The Peter Howson ‘Brother Walfrid’ limited edition boxed set is the culmination of more than three years of design, research and development.

The aim is not only to provide a limited edition print, signed by Peter Howson, at a reasonable cost but also to allow purchasers to discover the story of Brother Walfrid – and the Irish Famine – through a 60-minute documentary.

The film features extensive and exclusive interviews with Peter Howson.

The Case

The bespoke luxury covered presentation box with ‘twin opening’ lids contains the Peter Howson ‘Brother Walfrid’ limited edition print, certificate of authenticity and DVD. The case is handmade using a stunning textured material: black Lizard Pellaq from Winter & Co.

The face of the box features an enclosed framed reproduction of the print which has been 3D embossed, matt laminated and spot varnished for dramatic impact. The print also features gold and red metallic foils.

In addition to the box face print, the case also has red and gold metallic foil areas on all sides. Red ribbons are built into the box leave edges for ease of opening.

The boxed set comes with an elevated inner platform in the middle section to hold your signed and numbered limited edition print in position whilst also framing and protecting the print for storage or for display purposes.

The limited edition signed and numbered print comes packaged secure in its own metallic gold foil card mount.

The certificate is enclosed in an envelope style frame with magnetic closures.

The right-hand panel of the opened box has a metallic gold foiled card box attached to it which contains the DVD documentary. This also comes with magnetic closures.

The boxed set “finish” must be seen to believed, such is its quality.

The base of the boxed set also contains an enclosed printed image. This A6 image is a mono version of the Peter Howson ‘Brother Walfrid’ image printed in metallic gold onto a black base card giving a wonderful ‘bronzed’ impression.

The printed case measures approximately 320mm(w) x 440mm(h) x 80mm(d) and is shipped with a protective, durable and secure outer cardboard box, perfect for safe global delivery.

This boxed set comes in an edition of only 1,888 and retails at £600. Free post and packaging to anywhere in the UK. For overseas P&P please contact us.

The boxed set “triptych”: a work of art in itself.


The Limited Edition Print

The Peter Howson ‘Brother Walfrid’ artwork is colour-matched by colour-manipulation experts and approved and authorised by the artist himself. It has been reproduced to the size of 230mm(w) x 310mm(h) within an A3 (297mm(w) x 420mm(h) white-bordered print.

The limited and numbered edition of 1,888 prints are printed full colour process onto museum-grade Hahnemühle William Turner 310gsm, 100 per cent cotton, fine art paper. All inks used in the printing process are guaranteed light-safe for up to 100 years.

A serialised numbered hologram appears on the reverse of the limited edition print. A second, identically numbered hologram appears on the certificate of authenticity.

In addition, every print and accompanying certificate have been hand-embossed with a custom made 3D seal, adding security and subtle quality to each print.

This limited edition was originally released for public sale as part of a boxed set on November 6 2014.

Each of the 1,888 (the year Celtic played their first match) Peter Howson-signed prints is of museum-quality finish.

Each boxed set comes complete with a certificate of authenticity.

The Certificate 

Printed using the same process and light-safe inks as the limited edition print, the certificate paper was manufactured by world-leading experts, Hahnemühle. The Hahnemühle Certificate of Authenticity was designed to protect the security of your limited edition art print by reducing the risk of forgery.

Each certificate is made of premium deckle-edged, mould-made paper with a Hahnemühle watermark and fluorescent security fibres. A serialised numbered hologram appears on your certificate. A second, identically numbered hologram appears on the reverse side of the limited edition print.

The combination of certificate and hologram assures that each certificate of authenticity relates to one particular piece of art.
