Hi Bob,
Any idea if they'll be running the sale online? Also do they have their own website?
Cheers,
Matt

I emailed the chappie at the weekend re. consigning and ordering a catalog, and now some 3 days later haven't yet had a reply. I guess we can add them to the ever growing list of non-communicative auction houses.

Swann's a pretty lean organization who does a good job with their vintage poster auctions (my other area of collection); my dealings with them have always been pretty professional and courteous - I'd try to give 'em a bit more time before you write them off.
