The Wind In The Willows Screen Print by Peter Diamond x Black Dragon Press x Mondo

The Wind In The Willows Screen Print by Peter Diamond x Black Dragon Press x Mondo - US Variant & UK Variant

Mondo has teamed up with Black Dragon Press to release a new poster for Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind In The Willows by Peter Diamond! As the artist explained, “My impression of these characters and this story going into this turned out to be very different from what I came away with after reading the novel. I was broadly familiar with The Wind In The Willows from various adaptations and had certainly seen enough Willows art to have a pretty strong idea of what this thing was about: idyllic English scenery, cute animals in tweed, the toad being a bit loopy... But Toad’s not just a bit loopy, he’s truly sick. He’s charming and funny, sure, but in that very sad way perhaps only a person in the depths of addiction can be. His great source of joy and purpose is also a fatal menace to himself and those around him, and it wreaks havoc on his life.”

The Wind in the Willows by Peter Diamond is an 18”x36” hand numbered screen print, and goes on sale today, Tuesday, September 19th. This poster will be available in two versions: UK Red Variant and US Sepia Variant. The UK Variant is limited to 60 pieces and will go on sale at 5pm UK at the Black Dragon Press online store for £50, while the US Variant is limited to 40 pieces and will go on sale at a random time at the Mondo online store for $65.
