Exclusively by Art & Hue, the “Billy Liar” collection is available in three sizes & many colours, printed on museum-quality archival card of 310gsm, made from 100% ethically-sourced cotton, with fine-art pigment inks for longevity.

An official collaboration with Studiocanal to mark 60 years of the film’s innovative storytelling and groundbreaking portrayal of Northern working class characters in 1960s Britain, Art & Hue has delved into the archives to uncover images from the iconic film “Billy Liar” which have been transformed into stylish pop art prints, featuring Art & Hue’s signature halftone style (halftone is an age-old technique that uses dots to make up the printed image, similar to newspapers or comic books).
