Description

Playhour  
 
 Playhour was a British children's comic published between 16 October 1954 and 15 August 1987, a run of approximately 1,700 weekly issues. Originally published under the title Playhour Pictures, the title was shortened with issue 32 to Playhour. Playhour was intended as a companion to Jack and Jill, initially aimed at a slightly older audience. The lead strip in its early days was Prince, the Wonder Dog of the Golden West, drawn by Sep E. Scott. With issue 32 (21 May 1955) it lowered its target age-group and introduced comic strips based on A. A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh and Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows, both drawn by Peter Woolcock. 1956 saw the arrival of Sonny and Sally of Happy Valley, two children (and their pet lamb) who were to be associated with the title until its demise in 1987; Sonny and Sally wrote the weekly editorial letter and children writing to the editorial address (Cosy Corner, The Fleetway House, Farringdon Street, London E.C.4 — the address of the publisher, Amalgamated Press) would receive replies signed by Sonny and Sally. The stories of Sonny and Sally (drawn by Hugh McNeill) were initially related in rhyming couplets, as were a number of other early stories, although by the end of the 1970s the stories were written in normal prose form. Others were told in captions below the illustrations as Playhour avoided the use of word balloons common in contemporary British comics, a relic of pre-war nursery comics such as Puck and Rainbow.

 

WATERCOLOUR ON PAPER

Size - 34 x 26 cm (13 x 10 inch) Paper

Selling here is an original watercolour illustration by the well listed artist Rosemary Brown. This piece was used in Playhour on the 11th July 1987.

The illustration is full page with five individual cells, which could easily be seperated. Bearing a date and Playhour stamp to the lower margin.

A great illustration, not a copy or a print. 

A highly collectible piece, perfect to add to your collection or to give as a gift.  

The condition is good, with only a few small grubby markings and light creasing to the margins, but this does not effect any image.
