Global Art Prints have a portfolio of Inshaw’s limited edition prints and art prints including his iconic Badminton Game which was originally titled after a poem by Thomas Hardy and is one of a number limited edition prints influenced by the landscape of Wiltshire. Inshaw has written ‘my main aim was to produce a picture that held a moment in time, but unlike a photograph, which only records an event. I thought a painting could give a more universal, deeper meaning to that moment by composing one instant from lots of different unrelated moments.’ He has written of ‘the mystery and wonder I felt all around me in this magic place’.

A book on life and work of David Inshaw titled: ‘David Inshaw: Between Fantasy and Reality’ has been written by Andrew Lambirth and is published by Tabrett’s Publishers
