Oranges and Lemons' is an English nursery rhyme which refers to the bells of six churches, all within or close to the City of London and dates from around the 17th Century. The origins are unknown and many alternate lyrics and meanings have been suggested. This limited run of 130 were type set and printed by hand on an Albion Press and the bell was also screen-printed by hand, and are the first in a series of collaborations between Richard Ardagh and Graham Bignell. We already have a proof and they are absolutely lovely. The prints are on lovely heavyweight paper and are big, measuring 68.5 x 101.5 cm.
