Just wanted to check with others who ordered the Rough Trade special edition – it’s actually a black and white photocopy on A5 (ie half the size of A4) of one of Edwyn’s bird drawings (Grey Kestrel) on what looks a Heavenly Records complement slip
Not what I had in mind as a poster – and looks like it cost a few pence to produce.
What I really wanted to check is whether everyone else’s copy has half the tail missing (it goes off the edge of the page) or is that just the way Edwyn drew it?
If it turns out mine is not just a photocopy but a bad photocopy at that, I’ll be a bit upset!
Yes, my copy has too missing half the tail... Indeed it's a color copy (even it looks just like black and white). Maybe I should copy it on A4 and draw the rest of the tail myself... I'm sure Heavenly will do it the next time much better. For the vinyl buyer, they even didn't include a download code... Modern technology seems - I don't know.
Received my Kestrel print today, wasn't expecting it at all (Kestrels were my drawing bird of choice when I was young.)
Thank you Edwyn for the freebie, and a great picture too...
To all the moaners, are you really that upset?
re the missing Kestrel tail...the Kestrel drawing is also in Edwyn's book "Some British Birds" & the drawing does "fall off" the page so that the tail isn't complete there. If you remember, Edwyn has been relearning to write & draw with his left hand, and as part of this process I imagine it's pretty tricky to negotiate how to centre a drawing in the centre of a sheet of paper...so don't feel so much that you've lost a tail, think how you've gained a bird of prey!

My Bum Fuzz unit just arrived in California along with some plectrums with Edwin art. It took me along time to order this unit, but the twenty five year gestation period for it to be built surely eclipses my lack of urgency. Best regards all...
