David Bailey's Box of Pin-ups


I've had this in my ebay watch list since my favorite illustrator said it was the inspiration for her book Watkin's box of pin-ups. I've been waiting years in vain for her book to arrive in the states but still no word of it. Anyone in Sweden want to help me acquire it?

Well for the first time a couple of days ago David Baily's box of pin-ups, the original inspiration, turned up in my inbox and I was instantly delighted and extremely disappointed since one look at that price tag meant this Box of Pin-ups will Never find a place on my shelves. On the the other hand I was elated to have a peek at the infamous box. Perhaps one of you dear readers have deeper pockets than I and would like to invite me over for a full viewing?

Great find! Unfortunately for me too, free shipping doesn't count for much when it's $6k...

Haha, yes Ella good point;) This is the first time I've seen it in years of having it on my alerts I wonder if that is the true price. Wow, if it is.
