Closer may have lost the lawsuit, but they sure did get all the exposure (excuse the pun) they wanted. As of today, the magazine was still available at newsstands and new copies were even delivered that day to make sure everyone gets their hands on it (Ok sorry, I will stop now).
5 Pages of topless Kate. Not sure what the hell she was thinking. It’s perfectly all right here in France (the magazine cover shows her breasts and no one blinks), but when you are the Duchess of Cambridge, you sure know about paparazzi?? No?
If anyone want a copy, I still have a few available (if they are sold out, you won’t be able to complete checkout anyway). Check some of my eBay accounts feedback for reassurance: fanfreluche-a-gogo or fanfreluche-collectibles
Oh and the black marks won’t be on your magazine, I added these to the scan to preserve the innocents.
My price is 19.99$ shipping included to anywhere is the world.
I love those WWII painted airplane noses. True pieces of art. I love the topics, and no it’s not only pinup girls, and the messages. As a collector of all sorts of thing, I could easily start collecting vintage photos of WWII airplane nose art. But I won’t because I do have enough “stuff” to collect! Still, I enjoy browsing photos and books on the topic.
Historical Media are specialized in World War II photos, documents and collectibles and they do have quite often airplane nose art photos for sale. especially in the “single photos” listing. Unfortunately, no search box so it’s good old browsing. I bought from them YEARS ago, when they were still selling on eBay (bought some WWII France related photos).
If you want a nice book on the topic, here’s a suggestion:
After toying for months with the idea of trying to sell photo prints online, I finally registered to RedBubble. I also plan to try a few other places to sell photographic prints.
So RedBubble is rather easy to use. Not only can you upload your work and sell it via their print on demand market, but you can also keep a journal (like a blog). Not bad to promote some of your work (I still have to try the journal feature).
You can fix the amount of profit you want to make (I tested with a margin of 3000% and it was accepted). You need to find a good balance between what you want to make and the market price for similar items. Right now I am trying at 30% or 40%. We will see.
RedBubble is Australian, might be good to reach potential clients from Downunder who are reluctant to buy from US or European sites du to high shipping costs.
RedBubble also have some cool promo tools so you can share easily. Here’s their Sales Widget with some of my work. You can also display banners featuring your art:
In this post “The 90 Euros Cast Iron Pan” I talk about a Swedish brand of cast iron products. Well, I just bought a Skeppshult pepper mill at 50% off (I am crazy, but not enough to pay the full price). I used a gift card my mother in law gave me at Christmas, so in the end it’s a free pepper mill.
It grinds extra fine. I need to see if that can be changed to a coarser grind. It is ultra heavy (750 grams), you can use it instead of the cast iron pan to defend yourself in case of emergency. It is made out of wood and cast iron and has ceramic blades.
Husband didn’t ask how much it cost, I told him as a preemptive tactic it was paid with the gift card (which is true).
Bought them on the web at Lilipinso. Unfortunately, the English version of the site doesn’t work (maybe it is not yet completed). They ship to Europe and also worldwide (you will need to contact them first to have the shipping cost of your order).
I bought 2 nice art piece from artist Delphine Martin. Love it, so colorful and fun. That poor Giraffe is just hysterical!
The site offers a wide selection of decor for your kid’s room. They work with many different artists, so there is choice for all tastes. The reproduce these artist’s original work on various decorative items: prints, paintings, stickers, lamps, rugs and more.
The only thing I wasn’t 100% happy about was the lack of confirmation when I place my order. I paid with paypal, but did not receive an order confirmation from lilipinso. Otherwise, everything was perfect!
