The News Building, also known as the Daily News Building, is an art deco skyscraper. It was built in 1929 to the design of Raymond Hood. It was originally the headquarters of the New York Daily News.
The News Building is a National Historic Landmark. It is perhaps best known as the headquarters of the fictional newspaper the Daily Planet and the building where Superman works as journalist Clark Kent. Our architectural sculpture is of the 42nd Street entrance facade with its 3-story limestone bas-relief depicting the people of New York City with a background of skyscrapers.
Each of our architectural sculptures is handmade in our studio in Sussex, England. They are made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth, cool feel. The window frames and door are made of etched brass. Stylish ornaments, gifts or presents that are handmade in Britain and look fabulous on a desk, shelf or wall.
