7 teardrop (part 2)

Carnation Tear

[poster artwork "Teardrop" by Paul Hogg]

back in March, i posted one of my short ramblings around a poster i have had for about 20 years.  this poster has always facinated me.  before writing the post, i tried to do a little research to see if (a) i could find this poster somewhere still for sale or (b) find more by Paul Hogg.  my attempts were fruitless. 

since my original post, i have found the number of people searching Paul Hogg and this poster to be quite interesting.  the post has quickly made its way into my top five posts.  one of the more recent comments on the post mentioned that this poster may have been part of a set.  this of course renewed my interest in once again taking up the search.  and while it only took me a couple of hours after reading the comment to find the answer, it has taken me slightly longer to share that answer here.

while i cannot say how many posters were in this collection, i did manage to find another on ebay (in a long expired auction).  is she the exact same woman?  i cannot say.  but she is unmistakably belongs along side 'Teardrop'.

  1. her expressions are poignant - in a way she reminds me of cammila from

    1. Unfortunately, I do not. I purchased Teardrop over 20 years ago, and have not come across "Careless Whispers" outside of the expired ebay auction mentioned above.

  5. I had a careless whisper poster when I lived at home, it was my favorite! The image spoke to me so much, especially during those teenage years. I don't remember how I got it....I believe someone had gotten rid of it and either my Dad or brother picked it up for me.
