Editor's busy signing session

Western Morning News Editor Barrie Williams has been busy signing his name to help readers mark the 140th anniversary of the Plymouth-based paper.

As part of the celebrations, the newspaper has reproduced a Westcountry scene from its own unique and valuable collection of watercolours.

It shows a view from Mount Edgcumbe Deer Park looking towards the Naval Dockyard, painted in 1849 by Nicholas Condy.

Only one edition of 250 prints is being produced by Barbican Gallery. Each print is approved and signed by Mr Williams.

The fade-resistant inks used will guarantee that the print lasts “more than a lifetime” the newspaper says.

Each print costs £22.50.
