50’s Fins & Chrome by way of American Graffiti

What are we on about?
The first Fifties Fins and Chrome piece is finished and ready for sale!

Each authentic autograph is displayed behind conservation glass in an 11 X 14 Framerica frame custom-built and ready to hang. $300

All autographs, stamps and first day issue postmarks are displayed on acid-free mats and behind conservation glass using Framerica frame moulding. $300

Here it is, a scene from the movie American Graffiti starring Ron Howard and Cindy Williams leaning against a 1958 Edsel, matted with the first day of issue postmarks (both digital and hand cancel) and stamps commemorating America’s love affair with classic cars; notably the decades of 1950-1960 where the cars looked like they could fly or swim and gleamed as they cruised the blacktop, decked out in all their finny, chromed glory.

Keep an eye on this edition, or drop us a line and let us know which 1950’s memory you’d like to own.

Posthumous Oscar for Ledger

Exactly a year to the day since Heath Ledger died of a prescription drug overdose, has received a nomination for Best Supporting Actor at the 2009 Academy Award Celebration.
His death at age 28 sent shockwaves through the entertainment industry, and left fans mourning a premature ending to an already promising acting career.
It has been speculated that the rigorous demands of portraying the Joker in the Dark Knight led him to bouts of insomnia which were the reason he required prescriptions for anti-anxiety medication as well as pain killers.
The performance was indeed globally popular, assisting the Dark Knight in earning top film honors and nearly $1 billion in ticket sales.

Heath Ledger has already received a Golden Globe award, and a BAFTA nomination for best supporting actor. An Oscar for the same seems unquestionable.
NW Limited…History in VogueTM has honored Ledger with very small editions of signed, framed pieces in their DC Comics line. Many of them can be seen here.

Heath Ledger’s Golden Globe

Signed by Heath Ledger, this framed photo features the DC Comics first day issue stamps and postmarks combining to become perhaps the rarest of collectible limited edition art click to see our site

Heath Ledger won a posthumous Golden Globe award for his supporting role in Batman:
The Dark Knight. The movie has the honor of being the second-highest-grossing film in Hollywood (Titanic is first). 
The film’s director, Chris Nolan, accepted the honor for Heath’s role as The Joker.
The question remains: Will Ledger win an Oscar for this unparalleled performance?
