Vintage Classroom Poster - Number 43 - Birds in Winter - Raymond Sheppard
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. Jolly Times!
The posters have crisp, clear colours and are printed on heavy white paper. This print has been stored flat which has protected the image, however there is a small amount of creasing to the bottom left of the image - see the last picture. This should flatten when the print is framed.
They look fantastic framed up and on display in both children's and adult rooms. This print, and The Oak Tree are by Raymond Sheppard (1913 – 1958) a British artist and illustrator of books for children and adults. He is best known for his illustrations of Ernest Hemingway's 1952 novel The Old Man and the Sea.
