Vintage Classroom Poster - Number 68 - Aeroplanes
- William Fyffe
These vintage classroom posters date from 1938 and are from a series created by Enid Blyton in collaboration with a number of well known illustrators of the day. They were designed as talking points to be used in infant school classrooms. They conjure up the era perfectly, especially this one with the car, the pilot and the children at a 1930's aerodrome. It's by William Fyffe, who illustrated books for Enid Blyton and also painted The Railway Station and Lights at Nightime. The three look fabulous framed up and displayed as a trio.
The posters have crisp, clear colours and are printed on heavy white paper. Most have signs of wear and marks around the edges but the central images are all in good condition. They have been stored flat which has protected the image and means no creases.
They look fantastic framed up and on display in both children's and adult rooms.
Overall size is 52cm x 40cm. Image size 42cm x 30cm.
