A page of “Thunderbirds” art for TV21 by Frank Bellamy is one of a number of Gerry Anderson related items in an upcoming auction from Windsor Auctions – available via The Saleroom.
Windsor Auctions have been tweeting about it in various disguises on Twitter for a few weeks and the catalogue is now available. The item, listed here, is described as, simply, “Storyboard artwork from Thunderbirds “The Earthquake Maker” TV21 No 143 – No3 1967 by the famous artist Frank Bellamy”.
“Windsor Auctions have no need of a lengthy description and like most auction houses, they keep it to a bare minimum,” notes Norman Boyd, keeper of the brilliant Frank Bellamy Checklist Blog and Website.
“But ‘storyboard’ is really reserved for films, I would think! Gerry Anderson fans might like to peruse the rest of the auction as there are some pretty unique items there!”
Sitting within an auction that also includes both World War One and World War Two memorabilia, silverware and more, the auction takes place on 30th May and the full catalogue is online here.
