request (sorta OT)
- Hey, everyone,
Got a couple of things we're looking for. When I got back to work
after our 2 weeks in CA, I found that my manager had rearranged my
office. In the process, he decided to toss out some of my things,
including my 2006 Erte calendar. (Don't ask me why. It's lucky he'd
gone on vacation before I got back. They probably would have fired me
after they arrested me).
Of course, a replacement is not to be found at this late date. I
would really like a copy since it had some designs I don't have in
any of my Erte books. This one had a black and white design called,
IIRC, Byzantine. If any of you have this and don't want it after the
year ends or you know anywhere else I can find it, please let me
know. This is NOT the alphabet calendar, or the one with 2 ladies in
orange-ish outfits on the cover (which are the 2 easily found in a
Google or Ebay search).
Here's a link to the costume on the cover.
We are also looking for a couple of other Erte designs we would like
to do some day. Vandy Vandervort found framed versions of these at an
art gallery a couple of year's ago and has them in her living room.
We've found them on-line, Serigraphs for $10,000 each. I don't know
if they're in any of the books (and I hate to just buy a whole bunch
of them without knowing). These are Hera and Zeus. Here's a link to
see what they look like.
