    Hello Cephfans

    Just thought I'd point out that today's (30th June) issue of The Guardian Newspaper in the UK has a free giant nature wallchart of Octopus, squid and Cuttlefish. The painitngs appear to be from the early 20th cent (according to a colleague and birdfan the birds are painted more upright and slimmer than they are today, a fashion of the time apparently). It's a nice chart and will brighten up your room/office/submersible. here's a pic of today's cover. If nothing else it's nice to see the headline 'Octopus and Squid' on top of a national daily.

    I don't work for the Guardian by the way.

    I'm sure all of the Tonmo members in England will be more than happy to provide us with some pics...right? Hey, guys?

    Thanks Capn, didn't notice this when I was in WHSmiths earlier. Luckily my corner shop still had one this afternoon, so thanks for the pointer.

    Rather good, isn't it?

    It's not at all bad. No Messie though.

    here's a quick scan, it is a big wallchart, so this is just an A4 area of it (about 29cm x 21cm)

    That is a great poster! How come American newspapers never do anything as neat as that?

    nitpicking because I'm really jealous and annoyed that my local newstand only gets the weekly "internationalized" Guardian:

    they should either change the title, or not include Vampyroteuthis and Nautilus.

    but really, this is just sour grapes. You lucky Brits! (And Scotsmen, assuming Colin picked one up-- do we have anyone from Ireland or Wales about?)

    Blinking heck, that was quick. I only took them in to the post office on Monday afternoon. Glad you like it though, and pleased to see it'll confuse guests in your toilet.

    :hmm: How did it get to Arizona before Pennsylvania??? Oh well, I am thinking of posting mine next to the cuttle tank so they can see all of their cousins. :grin:

    You should also post a mirror next to it so they can see how pretty they are!:wink:

    HAHA! Not only did I get a super cool poster, but I was able to receive the info on People vs. the Fish (wagtail platy), and a stunning version of Cthulhu himself:

    Yeah I picked this up pretty much by accident. Was looking for the usual "Job" papers and saw this one with the chart. Had to get it!:grin:
