Aardman creates a Tonymorph!
Aardman have dedicated a Morph model to Tony Hart. Created by head model maker Enty (Chris Entwhistle), the Tonymorph bears more than a passing resemblance to Tony´s mischievous sidekick Morph - despite the snowy white hair, the cravat and the palette!
Aardman co-founder Peter Lord presented the model to Tony´s daughter, Carolyn Ross, during filming for BBC´s The One Show.
Book available from Amazon and other booksellers.
