This beautiful travel poster of Weston-super-Mare in Somerset is inspired by the vintage railway posters advertising the joys of British travel. It shows the beach, two beach donkeys, the Grand Pier and Steep Holm island.
There have been donkeys working on Weston’s beach for over a hundred years, run by two local families. The Beatles were even pictured sitting on them when they visited (though adults are otherwise not allowed!).
Weston-super-Mare grew as a tourist resort after the arrival of the railway, and is traditionally a popular resort with holidaymakers from Birmingham. It has a great wide sandy beach and one of the highest tidal ranges in the world – which is great for safe shallow paddling but can catch people out as the sea rushes in and out super fast and is often not where you want it to be when you arrive at the beach.
This is a digital copy of my original illustration and is printed on quality paper in A4 or A3 sizes. These are standard sizes and easy to mount and frame. There is a white border around the image to allow for the signature. Some photos show how lovely the print will look framed, but please note that the print is sold unframed and without a mount.
I sign all the prints in pencil in the bottom right and include the title of the print.
I will send A4 and A3 prints by Royal Mail, presented in a cello bag with a cardboard back for protection or onward delivery. International deliveries may be sent rolled in a tube.
Paper size: A4 (210 x 297mm or 8.3 x 11.7 inches).
Paper size: A3 (297 x 420mm or 11.7 x 16.5 inches).
Please note colours may vary slightly depending on your computer screen calibration.
