Carry On Art: Brilliant Gifts for Christmas


Yesterday I brought you some of my top books for the classic comedy fan in your life this Christmas and today I'm featuring some of my favourite art work with a Carry On theme. So take a look at some of this excellent art work if you're looking for something a little different this festive season.

Sam Bessant: Cult Film Posters


This art print pays homage to some of the most memorable places and things seen in the Carry On films. The print features a individual design from each of the 31 Carry On films such as Helping Hands Ltd from Carry On Regardless, Moore-Nookey Clinic from Carry On Again Doctor and Much Snogging-on-the-Green from Carry On Loving.

Sam at Cult Film Posters has a genuine passion for all things Carry On and he wanted to create a print unique for Carry On fans.


The art print is professionally printed on 340gsm white uncoated paper that gives a soft finish and tactile quality to the print. It is standard A3 at 297 x 420 mm and will come signed by the artist.
Please note: Frame is not included.

I have one of these prints myself and I absolutely love it. It's a unique and affectionate tribute to our favourite film series.

Art & Hue: Carry On Art Work inspired by the Anglo Amalgamated films

It is with great pleasure that I bring all my Carry On Blogging readers a unique discount code for some cracking Art & Hue pop art prints.

The longest-running British film series, Art & Hue has created a pop art collection inspired by the classic Carry On films.  

The Carry On films have their own distinct style that is totally unique, beloved by many, and an important part of Britain's comedy, film, and cultural heritage. 

British film company Anglo Amalgamated distributed the first 12 Carry On films starting with "Carry On Sergeant" in 1958 and ending with "Carry On Screaming" in 1966.

Sid James, Kenneth Williams, Hattie Jacques, Charles Hawtrey, Joan Sims, and Barbara Windsor (Dame Babs) have been given the Art & Hue treatment to create a collection of pop art portraits, all available in three sizes & 16 colours to choose from to fit into any design scheme.

The first twelve Carry On films have also been transformed into pop art 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).

Unlike traditional posters, which are printed on thin paper with inks that fade, Art & Hue creates giclée art prints, printed on 310gsm archival card, made from 100% cotton, with fine-art museum-grade pigment inks to last hundreds of years.
