The FD 18 is another “Sleeper“ in the Avalon series.  Unlike the rest of the Avalon/ Family Dog posters this  was printed on brown paper . Mouse and Kelley once again dig into the well of popular culture icons for inspiration. . This time they enlisted “Nipper” the famous terrier that was used as a logo for decades by the Gramophone Company and RCA/Victor company . This poster was produced in a ridiculously low print run of 1300 copies. We believe that less than 10% of those copies still exist.
