Our Story…

We’ve been Sherlock Holmes fans for as long as we can remember. We then started collecting original editions of The Strand Magazine that were destined for the scrap heap and turning them into individual works of art. Once our own walls were full we thought: ‘There must be other Sherlock Holmes fans who would like this’ and Elementary Arts was born!

Our passion is in preserving the majestic illustrations of Sidney Paget that have shaped the image of Sherlock Holmes we all know and love. We don’t deal in reproductions or reprints. All our unique pieces of art centre around the original pages of the Strand Magazine from the 1890’s or after. Yes, there might be some age spots or foxing but we believe this adds to the character and charm of stories that are over 120 years old.

We have a range of items in our collection that are available for immediate sale. We also offer a bespoke framing service where we can search for your specific requirements and create something that is truly individual to yourself. This could be the cover page your favourite story, an eye catching illustration or a storyboard of images that tell one of Conan Doyle’s famous tales in pictures.

All our artwork is tastefully mounted behind glass in solid wooden frames. A perfect addition to any Sherlock Holmes fan’s collection…
