God Save the Queen, promotional poster for the release of the single by Virgin, 25 May 1977
poster (990 x 695mm.), framed, pin holes, minor creasing
Jamie Reid’s design for God Save the Queen continues the strategies he had announced with Anarchy in the UK – take the symbols of the establishment and turn them on their head: here the Union Jack again and the official Silver Jubilee portrait of the Queen by photographer Peter Grugeon (this is often wrongly attributed to Cecil Beaton).
This poster was originally owned by Sid Vicious.
