About Terry O’Neill

One of the world’s most collected photographers, the iconic images of Terry O’Neill CBE are displayed in national art galleries and private collections worldwide. He pioneered the concept of celebrity culture as he travelled the world with his camera, working at the frontline of fame for more than six decades.

An extraordinary legacy

Alexandra spent time with O’Neill choosing the images that would appear on the backgammon board from his archive of photographs spanning more than half a century. Featuring stars from throughout the eras, Terry’s Goddesses include Bridget Bardot, Raquel Welch, Ursula Andress, Goldie Hawn, Jean Shrimpton, Audrey Hepburn and Twiggy.

The magic touch

A very personal detail stamps O’Neill’s signature upon this limited-edition backgammon set: his fingerprint, taken from the legendary finger responsible for operating the camera, engraved in the side of the walnut dice shakers.

An eye for detail

Presented with a beautifully grained Macassar Ebony wood doubling cube, the accompanying semi-precious red jasper and mother-of-pearl playing pieces are debossed on their leather bases to resemble a camera shutter.

A special edition

A limited series of just 20 backgammon boards, engraved with the edition number and Terry O’Neill’s signature, the photographer’s iconic black and white imagery is digitally printed with stunning clarity and definition upon the board by a printer who specialises in high-quality fine art reproductions.

Engraving

Backgammon board box lids and Stone Playing Pieces can be personalised with laser-engraved initials, dates, or even a short message. You can request engraving during the online checkout process.
