New sign promotes Bayeux tapestry panel
ALDERNEY’S famous tapestry featuring the Bayeux Final Panel now looks sharp and clear on the bright new sign outside the library just above the Island Hall.
Produced by IPS Ultraprint in Vale, Guernsey, on a giant digital laser printer with a ‘mouth’ 2.5 metres wide, the state-of-the art sign makes the tapestry colours glow and should last for many years.
Alderney’s three-metre tapestry has made a big impact since its completion in 2013 with stitches added by more than 400 individuals, including Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, making it one of the biggest community projects ever undertaken in the island.
The Ultraprint team said that when asked to tackle the job, they researched the tapestry website and were proud to be associated with such a project.
