Bill Brandt Stonehenge Picture Post 19th April 1947
Bill Brandt's dark and brooding landscape of Stonehenge under snow takes on a stark resonance when it is used on the cover of Picture Post. Austerity Britain is gripped by rationing and in the middle of it's worst winter (1946-47) for over a century. The magazine is dedicated to the questioning of the future of Britain. Brandt's Stonehenge symbolises some hope and belief in the future.
The article also features Brandt's unemployed Durham miner from 1936.
Complete and original and in very good condition.
There is an archive repair to the interior of the spine and new staples. Some rust staining in the position of the original staples, on the back cover and to the interior of the magazine.
A very faint name it pencilled on the front cover.
