Nick Bantock Philatelically Inspired Artwork. Original artwork created by the author and artist Nick Bantock as a clever philatelic Victorian era fantasy cover. This particular work is illustrated in his book "The Museum at Purgatory" on page 39. Includes the faux research notes which at first glance seem quite reasonable as an explanation of the Penny Red/Penny Black double bisect provenance. A crafty piece of inspired philatelic insight and the perfect piece to insert into your GB postal history exhibit to test the judges' knowledge! Signed on the back by the artist. Estimate
