Billy, Babe, and Bobbie Rainbow

In homage to "Wrestler", which I saw two nights ago, here are some great vintage wrestler prints designed by Peter Blake, one of the leaders of the 1960s British Art Movement. you may know Blake from his work designing the cover of the Sergeant Pepper's album. Blake was commissioned by DoDo Designs in 1967 to create prints that could be widely produced. Each of the Rainbow prints sold for 1Euro and brought his art onto the walls of the masses for the first time. Here's Billy Rainbow with sisters Bobbie and Babe Rainbow.
