    Part of my collection includes signed limited edition prints. I started collecting the prints about 30 years ago and also had the opportunity to meet some of the pilots and artists who created the works. Unfortunately I would guess all of the great men who have signed the prints have passed away. Anyone else collect?

    This print "The Giant Begins To Stir" was signed by a crew member from each B25 that was part of the Doolittle Raid including Jimmy Doolittle

    Yes indeed - I have quite a few ( in fact, more than I have wallspace for ! ). Like you, it's given me the opportunity to meet and talk with many legendary figures, nearly all of whom have sadly passed on.....

    A top-class collection, I have some but more than I have wall space for - Marie has been patient and understanding in tolerating my "dung". :)
    I got this print yesterday and was asked: " where is that going"? (Robert Taylor's "Knight's Move" , the 109's the aviation interest. IMG_8753.JPG IMG_8756.JPG )
