'Spying' was designed by Gary Page for the Red or Dead Autumn/Winter 1992 Collection. Produced by Belford Prints, the textile features a keyhole motif and has overt connotations with the concept of spying.

The collection also featured the 'Red Herring' prints, with the subliminal message : 'when you give someone a red herring you deliberately try to give them a clue which is wrong.'
