Jamie's artwork on 'Absolut London' limited special-edition bottle of Absolut Vodka (UPDATE)

Randi sends the news (source here) that Jamie has designed and drawn artwork for the label of a new special edition bottle for Vodka makers Absolut. The Vodka will be branded 'Absolut london' and Jamie drew seven characters in each of the following famous London styles: Eighteenth Century Dandy, Dickensian, Pinstripe Gent, 60’s Chick, SKA, Punk and 80’s Casual. Along with famous London landmarks, they will appear on the bottle. Absolut London will be on sale exclusively in Selfridges and Harvey Nichols on 1 March, before a general release in April.
There's also a contest/competition on Facebook to win Jamie original art done for the bottle, and you will also be able to buy one of 50 rare 'collector's gift packs' on there as well. The Facebook page is said to launch on 6 February so it might not all be up at the time of this post - it'll be here: http://www.facebook.com/ABSOLUTUK when it is.

UPDATE 18:27GMT:- orion70 sends a link to a blog post with some pictures of a bottle (or one of the bottles) here

UPDATE 15:51GMT 08/02/12:- we have been asked by Absolut's PR Company to remove the pic featuring the Jamie artwork.
You can still look at pictures of the bottle (large images) here and here.
