Tony Wilson - officially a national treasure 
Luke Bainbridge, writing on the Observer Music Monthly, reports that a photographic portrait of Tony Wilson by Kevin Cummins is set to be hung in the National Portrait Gallery as Portrait of the Month for December. After that, it will form part of the permanent collection. The photo, featuring AHW in amongst the pillars of the Haçienda dancefloor, was chosen from many submitted since Wilson died in August.

In addition, limited edition prints with proceeds going to charity are available as follows:

"With the blessing of Wilson's partner Yvette Livesey, Kevin Cummins is producing a limited edition of signed prints that will be sold with proceeds going to Manchester Royal Infirmary (Kidneys for Life charity) and Christie's Hospital (which was were Wilson himself was treated).

The prints are handmade 16 x 20 inch gelatin silver archive photographic prints in an edition of 30, signed by Kevin Cummins. The prints cost 450 GBP (incl VAT) each plus 10 GBP P&P (in the EU). Anyone interested should email kevin@kevincummins.co.uk
