    with gold pencil or gold leaf and framed Many silhouette artists gave the customer one copy while retaining the other for use in an album as a record of their work Arthur always presented both to the paying customer prefering to give them better value for money rather than keeping one as a record for the future use of collectors who would only be interested in his work after his death Perhaps too he was an early pioneer of buy one get one free He rarely signed his silhouettes for the same reason It is of course very logical for the collectors to be largely interested in the work of dead artists when dead they can create no more work Everything that was made is now a sort of limited edition it can t be added to Another reason for Arthur not signing some of his work was probably that he had a queue waiting Taking extra time to sign pictures could result in someone at the back of the line being impatient and leaving I guess Arthur by producing unsigned work has made the collectors job a touch harder Nobody knows exactly what he produced He certainly claimed to have cut over one million profiles which if true I calculate to be a minimum of 627 for every week of his career It should however be noted that I m not generally known for my great mathematical skills When Arthur died his scissors and studio were taken over by his son John My uncle John was in my memory at least a bit of a joker He employed a helper called Billy The Quid who concocted a strategy for beating the slot machines in the pier s amusement arcade On one occasion Billy and I were working his system actually it wasn t working and were booted off the pier by the arcade manager That evening I explained to my uncle that we d done nothing wrong We hadn t nudged the machines or cheated in any way Don t worry John said I ll sort it out tomorrow The next day as the manager passed the studio John called out to him and whispered to me that he d tell him straight Excuse me he said to the manager This is my nephew and I gather you kicked him off the pier yesterday I d just like to say that he s on holiday and he really likes playing the slot machines so next time you see him in there I d be really grateful if you d just kick him off the pier again Thanks Well thanks to you too John Anyway the truth is that John was great fun even if the joke was sometimes often nearly always on me Eventually John gave up silhouette cutting and instead turned his hand to running a Tricks and Jokes shop at the end of the pier which no doubt suited him very well He was sadly killed at
