17"x15" (43x38cm) Premium Frame

FSC real wood frame with double mounted 10x8 print. Double mounted with white conservation mountboard. Frame moulding comprises stained composite natural wood veneers (Finger Jointed Pine) 39mm wide by 21mm thick. Archival quality Fujifilm CA photo paper mounted onto 1mm card. Overall outside dimensions are 17x15 inches (431x381mm). Rear features Framing tape to cover staples, 50mm Hanger plate, cork bumpers. Glazed with durable thick 2mm Acrylic to provide a virtually unbreakable glass-like finish. Acrylic Glass is far safer, more flexible and much lighter than typical mineral glass. Moreover, its higher translucency makes it a perfect carrier for photo prints. Acrylic allows a little more light to penetrate the surface than conventional glass and absorbs UV rays so that the image and the picture quality doesn't suffer under direct sunlight even after many years. Easily cleaned with a damp cloth. Please note that, to prevent the paper falling through the mount window and to prevent cropping of the original artwork, the visible print may be slightly smaller to allow the paper to be securely attached to the mount without any white edging showing and to match the aspect ratio of the original artwork.

EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print titled "Those Magnificent Men and Women in Their Flying Machines: They Came, They Saw, and They Took a Ducking at This Year's National Birdman Rally on Bognor Pier" we are transported back to the summer of August 1978. The image captures the exhilarating atmosphere of an aviation competition that brought together daring individuals from all walks of life. Amidst the excitement, our attention is drawn to Jonathan Cole, who appears calm and confident as he prepares for his flight. With a twinkle in his eye and a mischievous smile on his face, he exudes an air of assurance that everything will go according to plan – at least so far. The photograph not only showcases the spirit of adventure but also highlights the humor inherent in such events. As participants take flight with their homemade contraptions off Bognor pier, it becomes clear that some may have underestimated the challenges they would face. It seems even these magnificent men and women couldn't escape taking an unexpected dip into the water below! This snapshot from Memory Lane Prints encapsulates a moment frozen in time during an era when aviation competitions like birdman rallies were popular forms of entertainment. It serves as a reminder of humanity's relentless pursuit to defy gravity while providing us with a nostalgic glimpse into transportation history.
