Astoria, OR. NW Limited…History in VogueTM had a busy year in 2007.
We were at Sunday Market through the monsoons and the heat wave, and will be there again in 2008.
NW Limited could be found at the Astoria-Warrenton Crab and Seafood Festival as well as various other local and regional events. More importantly, our History in VogueTM line has expanded greatly this past year:
2007 saw the culmination of four years of arduous research for “Dead Reckoning of the Pacific Graveyard” shipwreck chart. Produced right here in Astoria, Oregon, and printed in Portland, this is the quintessential shipwreck chart and a beautiful display as well.
The Beatles, the Jamestown, Virgina map (a celebration of the quadricentennial), Star Wars, Yoda, and Jimmy Stewart joined the lineup, also. When you consider the custom aspect of each of these subjects, that adds up to a lot of work! Each of the underlined links should take you to an example of the pieces mentioned. Many are available for sale, though some have been sold. Please feel free to inquire as to availability. email@example.com or 503-338-6056
The Lewis & Clark maps, a/k/a “the map that started it all” all three variations, are nearing the end of their availability. DC and Marvel comics are still available with many new events included in their respective editions.
The Beatles “Back in the USSR”

The USS Ronald Reagan tributes are also still available for purchase.
2008, however, has brought the shipwreck chart full circle, and it is now complete, ready to be presented to the public afterfour years of research and development.
The lithographs, at $50 each, are ready to go right now.
A substantial 33″ long by 17″ wide, the chart
is the largest piece to date.
They will be shipped in a 4″ tube along with a
letter signed by the creator, Bill Brooks.
Contact Bill at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how you can score one for yourself, though they also make a stellar gift.
“Dead Reckoning of the Pacific Graveyard” is the ultimate representation of north coast and lower Columbia River history, spanning the earliest years of maritime history on up to present day. 500 of these beautiful charts are available as lithographs.
For the serious enthusiast, the framed, matted and custom version of Dead Reckoning (prototype visible to the right, click for readable lithograph version) will be available very soon for purchase. When framed, they will be an impressive 44″ X 22″ of unparalleled maritime history. (click link to see detail area of the prototype)
We are taking reservations for those, now. There will only be 500 framed to go around as well, for a total of 1000 in the first printing. The framed version will be $500, and the lithographs $50.
To see our Hollywood-related pieces, you can go to Video Horizons in Astoria. While you’re looking for a couple hours’ entertainment to rent, take home a piece of Hollywood history forever. There are Star Wars, Yoda and Jimmy Stewart currently on display as well as the Easy Rider variation of American Motorcycle.
Don’t forget that NW Limited pieces include USPS first-day-issue stamps and postmarks. A postmark is only available once in a lifetime. This, as you can imagine, creates an ultra-limited aspect which is impossible to duplicate.
We always start with high-quality or rare images, and (in some instances such as the Beatles) vintage memorabilia. They are completely unique in that they encompass a wide range of collectability as well as being singularly beautiful displays.
Some of these editions will have authentic, original autographs available, so if you’re looking for something special in these categories, contact Bill Brooks.
These tributes are the epitome of History in VogueTM!
