Samuel Says 'Tired of Life' Art Print - Charcoal
Wear your passion for London with pride - and on the wall - in immaculate typography.
Run for the Hills is a creative meeting of minds (and pencils). A collaboration between graphic artist Dex and interior designer Anna Burles, their first and second collections celebrate all that is great about London's rich and vibrant cultural history.
A gift for true Londoners - Samuel Says is a piece for people who love London just as much Dr Samuel Johnson, one of England's cleverest men of letters and the originator of the capital's most beloved mantra.
Limited edition of 100 signed.
"Dr Johnson. Six-foot tall, poor, somewhat disfigured and potentially suffering from Tourettes... Samuel Johnson overcame some crazy obstacles to become a sensation as a man of wit and wisdom. His master opus was creating the great English Dictionary, but this man of letters was notorious for firing the kind of pithy one-liners most satirists would give their acid tongue for. This piece, featuring one of his most famous quotes, has been crafted in the style of those early editions of the Dictionary. Londoners are passionate about their city. And Samuel was no different."
"We'd always loved the quote but didn't know who had said it. We looked into it and realised that Dr Johnson was a real character. Not just clever but also witty. And not just the angry man from Blackadder. London is where we live and we're passionate about it. So we wanted a piece which encapsulates the way we feel about our city. There's nowhere better in the world. And we're lucky to call it home".
