This poster hung on my bedroom wall for several years until it started to fall apart, I still have the poster, though now it is kept safe in a plastic folder. A great picture based on Michael Trim's design for Jeff Wayne's musical version of 'The War of the Worlds'. In my opinion, this picture should have been added to Jeff's album when it was re-released on CD back in the 1990s. Great painting by a great artist.

Had this picture on my wall as a young teenager. Always loved the look of the machines and the picture as a whole, never knew who had done it until now some 25 years later.
