Poohsticks 3

Yesterday, in Sotheby's London sale of English Literature, History, Children's Books and Illustrations, E.H. Shepard's ink drawing of Poohsticks "For A Long Time They Looked At The River Beneath Them" (1928) fetched a record-breaking £314,500 ($490,470). This is a world record for any book illustration. It shows those much-loved A.A. Milne characters Winnie-the-Pooh, Christopher Robin and Piglet inventing the game of Poohsticks. The illustration was first published in The House at Pooh Corner in 1928 (CLICK).
