London Original Print Fair @ Royal Academy of Arts 19-21 April

If you're looking for a print to brighten up your walls, the London Original Print Fair is the event for you.

The longest-running specialist print fair in the world, this is the 26th London Original Print Fair, and is taking place at the Royal Academy of Arts.

Works on sale range from £100 to over £100,000, and you can buy treasures such as etchings by Canaletto and engravings by Hogarth, as well as works by contemporary artists like Peter Blake and David Hockney.

If you're not sure about the £10 entrance fee, but are still in the area, take advantage of the free Burlington Arcade Print Trail (an extension of the Royal Academy's Fair) just around the corner. Shops throughout the gorgeous Burlington Arcade are showcasing a series of stunning prints in their windows, with a theme of Royal Romance. Look out for romantic images by Damien Hirst, Hogarth, Rob Ryan and Terry Frost. Some stores have a limited number of Fair passes to give away to customers, so keep your eyes open for that over the next few days!

The London Original Print Fair runs from 19-21 April at the Royal Academy. Tickets cost £10 including catalogue for an adult, and concessions are £7 including catalogue. Visit www.royalacademy.org.uk for more information. The Burlington Arcade Print Trail continues until 3 May.
