Summary

BQ Poster Edition is a portfolio of five screenprints. It was published by Gallerie BQ, Cologne and printed by Karl-Heinz Neumann, Cologne in an edition of thirty on thin white wove paper, mid-blue in colour, on the reverse. Tate’s copy is the nineteenth in the edition. Each print was made using between two and seven colours.

The portfolio utilises many of the graphic motifs that have come to typify Wright’s personal imagery.
