Sold. I'm out looking for more but in the meantime head to the shop for more lovely things at www.handmadeandvintage.co.uk
This large cotton panel shows Tintin and Snowy aboard the Aurora in Herge's 1942 book The Shooting Star.
This reclaimed fabric has two colour pictures printed on a white background which is overlaid with a map of the Arctic ocean and a star marking the location of the comet. Each of the two pictures are a good size - see measurements below.
This is a big piece of fabric that would divide for smaller projects like cushions, bags or patchwork. Or could be used complete as part of a quilt or curtain.
It's in excellent conditon with no marks or tears and is marked with the Herge copyright for 1993.
Overall this panel measures 130cm (wide) x 120cm (long). The 2 pictures of Tintin and Snowy measure approximately 52cm square.
There is another pictures from this series, and some matching fabric, in the shop
