Philip Martin

Glyn Martin

A series of fine quality signed limited edition prints taken from the watercolours by

Philip and Glyn Martin

For over thirty years renowned artists Philip and Glyn Martin have been touring Great Britain capturing, in finely detailed watercolour paintings, the couontry's much loved towns, villages and favourite places It has taken these talented brothers thousands of miles around Britain. They have painted scenes in rural villages, industrial towns and cathedral cities, tiny fishing villages and great city ports, humble cottages and stately homes. Gradually they have built up an impressive portfolio of many hundreds of different prints which continues to grow as demand for their work increases. It has been a huge task but the care and attention to detail shows through in each picture. 'Portraits of Britain' have rapidly become collectors items especially as only 850 prints are taken from each original.


Each print is one of a strictly limited edition, individually numbered out of 850 and signed. The original watercolours are used only for one edition and no other reproduction is made. The high quality of printing and the material used sets these prints apart. They are difficult to distinguish from the originals as they retain so much of the feel and delicacy of watercolour. The artists themselves are very involved in the printing process. They work with a talented craftsman who has developed a way of printing on real watercolour paper. This paper is produced especially for them by an English mill. It is made from 100% cotton and is completely acid free.

Richard Nicholson

I have been buying and selling antique maps since the early 1960's during which time I had a gallery in Watergate Street, Chester for 30 years. I am now able to offer through my websites a personal service to map and print collectors.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are the prints old or are they just copies of old prints?
Most of the prints on the site are genuine early specimens published in or around the year stated. A guarantee label is provided with each print. There are some modern prints including the Portraits of Britain Series and the Views by Mads Stage. But these are clearly shown not to be antique prints
How quickly are order sent off?
Orders are dealt quickly. Orders received in the morning are usually sent off the same day as I receive them. Failing this it is usually the next day.
Is map number --- available?
The web site is updated daily and sold items are removed so it is most likely that the print is available. You can always email me to check availability
What currency are your prices in?
All the prices on my web sites are in English pounds or pounds sterling.
What is the best way to pay?
There is a Shopping Cart for most of the maps to pay by PayPal. The best way is to email me to check a print is available then pay the total amount to my bank account and advise me you have done so. Telephone orders using your Mastercard or Visa Card are also welcome. Overseas customers may find the PayPal Cart the easiest way to by. The reason I prefer the bank payment method is simply because the charges to me are far less than the other methods.
Can I call and see the maps?
I am sorry, no. I had a map and print shop in the centre of Chester for 30 years. Since closing the shop the business is postal only except for the few maps that are available only for collection from Christleton.
How many copies do you have of each map?
I only have one specimen of each print offered. If I had a second similar specimen it would be offered separately under a different reference number.
