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.

Healey,

I have purchased a number of prints through the bluebird project shop in support of the project, the quality is fantastic, I have mine framed. I know a few of us have them

All great choices !

I have bluebird at speed and Full Power, the latter is not a Pittaway though.

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.

I thought my Pittaway was “Bluebird at speed”

Clearly I need to remove it from the wall and have a look.

I find it strange in a way that most of the project team have purchased images of the Boat, yet we see the real thing three times a week (or more in some folks cases)

I believe Novie may top us all on the art count as I think he has purchased almost every quality print made !

EDIT: just checked and it’s titled “The final curtain”
