Limited edition of 300, printed on 290 gsm Hahnemuhle bamboo paper, the piece is signed and numbered by the artist. 
This piece is an ironic version of the Never Trust A Hippy quote from The Great Rock n Roll Swindle, a smaller version of this print was issued in 2007 in response to yet another decade anniversary of God Save The Queen, and sold out in 2 days at an art fair.  
Jamie Reid was born on the 16th January 1947 in Croydon, London famously known for the artwork to the Sex Pistols 'Never Mind The Bollocks' sleeve which was the No.1 most voted for album cover of all time. He was the graphic artist and back-bone to Malcolm McLaren & Vivienne Westwood's Seditionaries label and punk gods, The Sex Pistols. 

Raised in a politically active family, Reid uses his creative voice to shout about the most contentious of political issues: nuclear weapons, racism, the criminal justice system. His powerful political art prints have earned him a loyal following, with high profile collectors including Madonna and Angelina Jolie.

Jamie Reid remains the country's top anti-establishment big name artist and is infamous as the agitator who put the safety pin through the Queen's lip to visually define punk and it's icons, the Sex Pistols.
