Sold. I'm out looking for more but in the meantime head to the shop for more lovely things at www.handmadeandvintage.co.uk
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; filled with children and nature subjects all in the styles and colours of the period. This one is by William Fyffe. He also painted the Aeroplanes print and The Railway Station, so have a look at those if you like his style
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.
