Hi there, shipping to Canada is no problem. We ship worldwide on a regular basis. Which prints are you interested in? They're all shapes and sizes.

Hi, May I enquire as to which prints you are referring to. I myself produce a booklet (The Research & Development of Donald Campbell's K7 Bluebird.) and a larger volume (Rainbow Coloured) the complete story of the K7 Bluebird. Both include many line drawings and sketches. All of which are available on a C.D.
Good luck, Fred Blois
P.S. I might add that may plans were permitted for sale by Ken Norris, himself who also wrote a foreword to the Res * Dev booklet.

Bluebird at Speed, Ready to Go and She's Tramping are by Keith Hick, all amazing pieces and reproduced for us to an incredible standard by Metro Imaging in London. One of Metro's founder members, Chris Jackson, later to lose a cruel battle against a rare form of cancer in 2012, pledged to help the project by reproducing Keith's work for us FOC and the company carries on his legacy to this day thus ensuring that the money from every print goes straight into the boat. It was a generous gesture at the time when we had nothing and people were looking at our pile of bits as we promised to make them into a boat with more than a little scepticism - but to have it honoured six years later is outstanding.
The prints are big - the size of one of those free calendars your suppliers leave at Christmas with pic's of Britain's finest viaducts or sunsets over God knows where. They're also printed on paper as thick as carpet and we'll sign them for you too if you like.

We've done this before and of course taste in art is a very personal thing, but for me its Arthur's 'Full Power', every time- it has a technical accuracy that pretty much no other interpretation comes close to, yet also the artistic license of the exaggerated perspective giving the illusion of speed; as a painting of K7, I think it's without equal.
