Finally got my "Stuff I can't bear to cut up" print bin together - just in time for this weekend's Open Studios (5-9 pm Friday 12.14 and 10 am-3 pm Saturday 12.15). It's kicking off with 11 original Fortune magazine covers from 1932-33. These are NOT reproductions, and they're in mint/near mint condition.
They're matted in archival mats and ready to pop into a standard 16" x 20" frame. Great gift. I checked online and they're selling for $75 to $200 each. Mine are bargain priced at $55.
Have to start de-stashing ... but I am keeping one for myself, along with the rest of each magazine. Yes, they were entire issues with some great art inside that I don't feel quite so bad about cutting apart. Well, I may mat some of the car ads - they are pretty fantastic - to sell.
