Spy Vibers, if you are redecorating your secret lair this summer, take a look at the new series of prints at Art & Hue. Agent Odysseus has just added a new line to his collection of Pop Art images based on The Avengers. Spy Vibe spotlighted his Steed and Peel posters last year. Now get ready for Purdy! From the press release: Art & Hue is pleased to present Joanna Lumley, a new pop art collection inspired by the absolutely fabulous model, Bond-girl, and Avenger. An official collaboration with Studiocanal, think Andy Warhol meets Patsy Stone in this new range of six stylish pop art prints featuring national treasure Joanna Lumley. For six decades, Joanna Lumley has left her mark in iconic productions that endure to this day, most gaining a cult following and lifelong fan-base, from "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" and "The New Avengers", to "Sapphire & Steel" and of course "Ab Fab". Available in 18 colours and 3 sizes, the collection is printed on 310gsm fine art archival matte paper, made from 100% cotton, using pigment inks which last several lifetimes, and come in three sizes that fit widely-available picture frames. More details below.

Since the 1960s onwards, Joanna Lumley has left her mark on each decade in iconic productions that endure to this day, most gaining a cult following and lifelong fan-base. In 1969, Joanna draped herself elegantly into an armchair on Piz Gloria playing a glamorous Bond-girl in fan-favourite “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”, which also starred fellow-Avenger Diana Rigg. Unlike Honor Blackman and Diana Rigg, Joanna Lumley appeared in a James Bond film before becoming an Avenger and working with the quintessential gentleman, Patrick Macnee as John Steed. Purdey kicked her way across our screens, and into our hearts, in 1976 with a fashion-forward haircut which sparked a trend, although the producers weren’t happy initially as the publicity photos to promote “The New Avengers” were taken when Joanna had long hair. Purdey was a strong and modern woman, continuing the legacy of “The Avengers” to empower and inspire young viewers. One of Joanna’s most unique roles was as a Time-Agent with The Man from Uncle’s David McCallum in the sci-fi series “Sapphire & Steel”. Her eerie other-worldly character hitched more fans to the Lumley wagon and with good reason – her captivating performance and shining eyes made the show an instant cult-classic."
