Glenn Brown Limited Edition print

The artist Glenn Brown made a name for himself (and found a little notoriety too) by "borrowing" visuals from art history and popular culture, then embellishing them with his own imagery. Nominated for the Turner Prize in 2000, he is now represented by The Gagosian Gallery, where his works sell for hundreds of thousands of pounds.
But the keen-eyed will also find his work selling through The Tate Modern's shop at a far more reasonable £350, a sum which will buy you a large(ish) Lambda photographic print titled "For JP Sartre 2009". Surrealism meets existentialism, if you like.

There are three designs to choose from, all hand signed in a metallic marker pen and they're selling for $275 each. They're available at the Gagosian Gallery shop here.

John Stezaker. In the Saatchi collection, the Rubell collection, and maybe in your collection.

Collage artist John Stezaker has been creating his trademark works, which rely on cutting cropping and pasting found images, since the 1970s. In recent years he's become more prominent, being bought by the likes of Charles Saatchi, the Rubell Family Collection and the Tate Gallery. Here's your chance to join these art world big hitters by buying a Stezaker a great price. To commemorate his new retrospective at the Whitechapel Gallery, a new edition of 150 prints has been launched, at a price of just £230. As I said, it's a great price - his works normally sell through the Approach Gallery for several thousand pounds.

A David Shrigley edition that's really a unique drawing

'Untitled 2009' by David Shrigley is a limited edition of 100, each hand drawn on Canaletto 300gsm paper. The edition is presently for sale via Counter Editions for just £480, which makes it a bit of a bargain. After all, for less than £500 you're essentially getting a unique work by one of Britain's wittiest artists. Not to mention collectable - at last count the Tate Modern had ten Shrigleys in its permanent collection.

A Peter Blake limited edition print for £46?

Yes, that's right. It's an edition of 5000 screenprinted on tin (just like a smaller version of Peter Blake's famous 'Babe Rainbow' print from the 1960s) and comes with a certificate of authenticity. See the Tate Modern's online shop for more details.
