QUEEN HOT SPACE SIGNED ARTWORK - This one-off, ie THERE IS NOT ANOTHER artwork run out, was created when the band was putting together their Studio Collection Box Set. This was created for them to approve the artwork that would be included in the box and we grabbed a chance to get them to sign this for one lucky collector. This is signed by Brian May and Roger Taylor and is in immaculate condition.
NEAL PRESTON SIGNED PHOTOGRAPH BOOK - This is signed by Neal Preston and contains a beautiful print inside the cover of the book - this is the item that is signed. This is, without doubt, a most wonderful collection of Queen’s musical adventures out on the road, captured by Neal himself.
