                                        Acquisition of Artwork

The  Directors  of  Storyboard Assets Plc ("Storyboard" or "the Company") are  delighted  to  announce
details of the latest addition to its portfolio.


"The  Morning  Walk". An original artwork by EH Shepard taken from A.A.Milne's "Now We Are  Six",  the
third of the four "Pooh" books by Milne.

This  latest  addition to the portfolio is especially significant for Storyboard Assets  Plc,  as  the
company  now  owns all three of the artworks relating to the "Morning Walk" poem by Milne,  with  each
piece showing Christopher Robin holding Pooh bear.

Marcus  Yeoman,  Storyboard's Chairman commented: "We are delighted to build up a particularly  strong
position in Shepard illustrations from this important and timeless piece of children's literature. The
timing  of  this  purchase  is especially significant, occurring just days  before  one  of  the  most
significant book illustration auction events of the past decade."
