First and foremost, y'all are familiar with the work of Jim Flora, yes? A children's illustrator and truly mod fellow he created images like this:
In any case, there's an original 1940s Jim Flora Woodcut Print for sale on eBay right now. The auction ends on May 25th, so take that as it may be.
In other news, and as applying to the whole Winnie-the-Pooh flavor of my place of employment, there are two original Pooh prints by E.H. Shepard up for auction at Bonhams in London.
Aw. Look at the cute little guys.
Two rare illustrations featuring the adventures of A.A. Milne's much-loved creation, Winnie-the-Pooh by Ernest H. Shepard (1879 - 1976), are to go under the hammer at Bonhams in London later this month. 'Tigers don't like honey' and 'Pooh visiting in Owl's parlour' are expected to fetch between £20,000 - 30,000 each at Bonhams' Sale of Modern Pictures and Illustrations at Knightsbridge on 22 May 2007.
