Once upon a time on eBay, it was possible to snag a bargain. Now, everyone knows the value of everything, nothing’s sold at auction and what little you can get is a very expensive Buy It Now. But I thought I would point you at this Lewitt-Him poster for the simple reason that I haven’t seen it before.
Interesting, but I can’t say that I like it enough to pay $500 for it.
Elsewhere you can find this rather nice 1958 BEA poster.
Which also has an interesting story, as it was apparently the winning design in the BEA Christmas poster competition for 1958. But once again, at $350, I don’t think I’ll bother.
And finally, a curiosity. It’s by Royston Cooper – but can this be the same one?
It’s from 1979 and it’s a souvenir from the Gordon Bennett balloon race, a fact which almost makes me think it’s a spoof. Except who would bother. Anyway, it failed to sell at £5.99, so I’m sure that if you emailed the seller and asked nicely, it could be yours. And if anyone can tell me that this really is by Royston Cooper, I’d love to know how and why.
