No other photographer this century has been as up close and personal with as many film stars and rock stars as the legendary Terry O’Neill. From Frank Sinatra and Faye Dunaway to the Beatles to the Rolling Stones, O’Neill broke new ground in the Sixties with his 35mm camera shooting the stars of Hollywood and the bad boys of rock ‘n’ roll in intimate, unguarded moments. His photography depicted the explosion in youth culture and defined the swinging Sixties.
Now, the iconic photographer has collaborated with designer Alexandra Llewellyn to create the ultimate collectable boy’s toy – a bespoke backgammon board, signed and numbered by Terry O’Neill and limited to an edition of 20, featuring a selection of his iconic images of movie goddesses, including Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot, Ursula Andress, Jean Shrimpton, Racquel Welch, Twiggy, Goldie Hawn, Honor Blackman, Jacqueline Bisset, Candice Bergman and Barbara Bach.
Made in Britain in Macassar ebony, the board is tournament-sized and measures 78cm x 58cm x 9.5cm when open. Each dice shaker is engraved with O’Neill’s photograph-taking fingerprint. The playing pieces are brass inlaid with mother of pearl and red glass, with leather embossed with a camera aperture on the bottom. RRP £5,800 inc VAT.
