The latest release from the Jim Flora Fine Art shop is nothing to sneeze at (haw! haw!): an open-edition mini-print reproducing the cover of Flora's 1957 children's book The Day the Cow Sneezed. You may recognize the kittycat and mouse from the cover of our book The Sweetly Diabolic Art of Jim Flora. As always, much more info from Flora doyen Irwin Chusid and all the ordering details can be found at the Flora website.
The Forbidden Planet International Blog Log calls these Converse Chuck Taylors featuring Charlie "Chuck" Brown "an absolute abomination" — me, I want a pair. (Too bad they're only available from trendy French shop Colette [warning: autoplaying music at site] and cost €240.)
Jim Flora doyen Irwin Chusid writes:
"JimFlora.com is offering an open edition fine art print entitled Night-Sky Moonswinger. The image of an overalls-clad boy on a rope swing strung from the moon originally appeared on the back dust jacket of Pishtosh Bullwash and Wimple, Flora's 12th children's book, published in 1972 by Atheneum."
As a lad I would have liked having this on my wall. Click on for more details and purchasing info.
New from Drew Friedman's Fine Art Prints concern is this portrait of John Lennon (originally published in TIME for a tribute to Lennon by Paul McCartney), released to commemorate what would have been Lennon's 70th birthday on October 9. Irwin Chusid's typically well-written description and ordering details can be found here.
