Art & Hue Presents 1970s Cops!

Now this isn't strictly Carry On related, even if it does feature a pre-Carry On England Patrick Mower, but I just had to share this new range of pop art from the brilliant Art & Hue. I have a massive soft spot for the very best of British television from the golden age - the 1970s. Two of my favourite shows are The Professionals, starring Martin Shaw, Gordon Jackson and Lewis Collins and The Sweeney, which featured John Thaw and Dennis Waterman.

I don't think they make telly like that any more which is a great shame, however you can own your own piece of classic TV nostalgia with this great new range of art work.

Art & Hue presents 1970s Cops, stylish pop art illustrations of iconic Seventies police detectives, available in three sizes and 25 colour options.

Fast talking, thinking, and driving, 1970s cops leapt into action at a moment’s notice, catching bad guys unawares and foiling plots with skidding cars and a cocky swagger.

“The Sweeney”, “The Professionals”, “Special Branch”, and “Target” hooked British viewers with a captivating mix of rule-breaking and action. 

Capturing the spirit of the 1970s, Lewis CollinsMartin ShawGordon JacksonPatrick MowerJohn Thaw, and Dennis Waterman have been given the Art & Hue treatment in this group of six stylish graphic illustrations.

Exclusively by Art & Hue, all pop art prints are printed on museum-quality archival card of 310gsm, made from 100% cotton, using fine art pigment inks for longevity.

2018 marks 40 years since the final episodes of The Sweeney & Target and 35 years since the final episode of The Professionals.
