WORRALS FLIES AGAIN – ORIGINAL ARTWORK BY LESLIE STEAD

 

 

Worrals Flies Again

This is the original cover artwork for the Captain W. E. Johns book –

WORRALS FLIES AGAIN by Leslie Stead

 

This book was published by Hodder and Stoughton in September 1942 so the artwork is over 70 years old!

Although this was the second Worrals book (and my own personal favourite) published in date order it actually contains the third Worrals story;

‘Worrals Carries On’ was published in October 1942 but had been serialised earlier.

This is the FIRST Stead artwork for ANY W. E. Johns book!!

(His first Biggles book artwork was for ‘Biggles Sweeps the Desert’, published in November 1942 – two months later!)

You will notice that the original artwork extends further than the parts used for the actual book dust jacket

(picture shown above) and this artwork shows a fantastic clear “Stead” signature.

This artwork comes with the original colour frontispiece of this book – framed and glazed – click here to see a picture of this.

AND ALSO THE ORIGINAL PROOF COPY OF THE BOOK HAND AMENDED BY W.E. JOHNS HIMSELF!

The artwork showing is approximately 28 cms by 47 cms and

The frame size is approximately 46 cms by 66 cms

I had this professionally framed with “Schott Mirogard” glass, which is virtually invisible.

You can read all about the glass here http://www.schott.com/architecture/english/products/anti-reflective-glass/mirogard.html?so=uk&lang=english&highlighted_text=Schott+Mirogard
