As we know only too well, Victorian circus posters often contain details of some crazy-sounding performances. We decided to go a step further with this poster and cooked up some truly bizarre acts. Quite what a tribe of monkeys in a balloon actually looks like will have to be left to your imagination.
Beautifully assembled from bits of real vintage posters and artistically ‘aged' to perfection, The Monkey Tribe is available in three variations and each print comes with an information sheet.

Prints are framed professionally, to order, by a Guild Commended Framer using archival-quality materials and usually ship within 7 working days.
Frames are available in a vintage-looking, ‘distressed’ black finish that perfectly matches the aesthetic of the print. The frame is sealed on the back to prevent dust from entering and D-ring attachments and hanging cord are also fitted so that the print will arrive ready to hang. A card is also attached to the rear of the frame containing information about the print and how it was made.
High-quality acrylic is used in place of glass for all shipped orders. It is visibly identical, but should not be cleaned or polished with abrasives.
