Win signed Peter Saville gift wrap

Despite the doubters, it's selling fast – and we've got a signed set to give away

Published on December 10th 2009.


Win signed Peter Saville gift wrap

We've got our hands on a set of two sheets of the much-talked-about Peter Saville wrapping paper, signed by the man himself. And one lucky reader has the chance to win it.

And if you want to be certain of getting your own, you can always head to Manchester Art Gallery on Thursday 17 December between 4pm and 5pm where Peter Saville will be doing a signing.

Peter Saville – Manchester's esteemed creative director – created the wrapping paper as part of a wider marketing campaign for Manchester. The multi-coloured, abstract design, which is taken from one of his ‘waste paintings’, started out as a fashion photograph for a magazine. It aims to subtly evoke the warmth and emotion of Christmas in a contemporary way.

Apparently, this limited edition gift wrap is proving to be a hit with Christmas shoppers. More outlets have signed up to sell the stuff, with Selfridges, MOSI, Northern Flower on Tib Street, the Whitworth Art Gallery, the Cathedral gift shop, and the Cathedral’s Christmas market stall in Exchange Square all adding their name to the list of stockists. You can also buy it at the Tourist Information Centre in St Peter’s Square, Manchester City Art Gallery, Urbis, Visit Manchester’s Christmas market stall in Albert Square, and Vinyl Exchange in the Northern Quarter, and online at www.visitmanchester.com.

Only 5,000 tubes are available and each contains two 1 metre x 70 cm sheets priced at £2.99. Northern Flower is offering a gift wrap service as well as selling the paper. For details call 0161 832 7731 or email info@northernflower.com.

The signed sheets are a must-have for any Factory Records fan. And if you want to be certain of getting your own, you can always head to Manchester Art Gallery on Thursday 17 December between 4pm and 5pm where Peter Saville will be doing a signing.

To enter the competition, just answer the following question: Name one of the outlets in the city centre where you can buy the limited edition Peter Saville gift wrap.
