Bird art to go under the hammer

Two striking posters of Australian birds by the late artist and designer Dame Eileen Mayo look set to be star attractions at a London auction this week. 
The two lots at the Christie’s sale of vintage travel posters feature the Banksian cockatoo and the emu. 

The works are expected to fetch £1,500-£2,000 each. The sale is on September 9. Contact Nicolette Tomkinson or Sophie Churcher, tel: 020 7752 3206.
