Classic Stills, a Los Angeles and London-based publisher of rare and iconic photographs, has released sixteen images captured during the filming of the classic 1960s television series, The Prisoner. The cult favourite was the brainchild of the late Patrick McGoohan, who starred in it as Number 6 and also directed and wrote many of the key episodes. It was produced by Lew Grade.
Classic Stills’ collection of images, sourced from ITV’s photo archive, has never previously been available for purchase as fine art prints. The limited-edition prints include photographs of Patrick McGoohan and other cast members on the set of the show and behind the scenes during shooting of the series.
“The Prisoner remains one of the most iconic TV shows of all time,” said CEO Rene Freling. “We’re delighted to have access to ITV’s archive to produce the official collection of fine art prints from this truly unique and innovative piece of TV history.”
The prints are on sale in up to four sizes, with 100 individually numbered prints of each image available in total. Prices range from £125/$149 to £349/$449. Classic Stills images are developed using the chromogenic print (C-print) process and are printed on archival-quality photo paper. Every print is framed meticulously by hand, includes acid-free matting and hinging, and is protected by UV acrylic to prevent fading.
The stills will be available for purchase in Europe and North America. For more information, see Classic Stills for the USA and Classic Stills in the UK.
