Racey Helps - The Astonished Angler
This is an artist signed standard/chrome postcard by Racey Helps. Racey Helps was a children's author & illustrator, and there are many beautiful postcards of his work, featuring animals in all sorts of situations. This one is called "The Astonished Angler" - apparently a mouse has gone fishing and accidently caught a frog.
This piece of art was done under the auspices of the Medici Society in London, which till exists.
I'm not sure of the age, but Racey Helps died in 1970 or so, making this postcard from the 1960s at the latest. I like it.
