    John Lennon Large Limited Edition Dye Transfer Photographic Print by Astrid Kirchherr, the "Attic Portrait" Taken in 1962, Signed on the Mat, with Signed COA. A haunting head and shoulders portrait of John Lennon, 17.5" x 21.5" (sight size), matted and framed to an overall 29" x 32". It is signed in pencil on the mat at lower left. This was taken by Kirchherr after her fiancé (and former Beatle) Stuart Sutcliffe died. The Beatles were making their last appearances at the Star Club in Hamburg when John and George visited her at her parents' house; she took photos of the two both together and individually. This is one of those and one that she particular likes. Note that this is one of only 200 made from the superior dye transfer process, the other 1000 were lithographs. A signed 6" x 4" b&w photo postcard of Ms. Kirchherr is included as well as the numbered (#132) and signed original certificate of authenticity. The text of the COA can be found on our website. Excellent. COA from Heritage Auctions.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
