Odds and ends from the internet today. Mostly because I wanted to post this.
Normally it lives on the shelf in Richard Hogg‘s studio. Lucky him.
You can buy some later Eckersley on eBay at the moment too.
We’ve got a copy of that already. But I can say with some certainty that it didn’t cost £100, which is its starting price.
There on the other hand, people seem to have come back to eBay after the summer holiday lull with high expectations of what their posters are worth.
Both this Unger
are up with a starting price of £44.99.
But perhaps the seller isn’t deluded. Because this delightful John Burningham – also a reproduction – has just sold for £56.01.
The John Burningham book has arrived, by the way, and is an utter delight. So more on him next week. For now, a look at the proper version of the poster above to cheer you up on a dull Friday morning.
Perhaps I might even go on a country walk myself this weekend.
