Many many thanks to all of you who over the past week took time to pre-order copies of the forthcoming book The Wainwrights in Colour. This morning I made the draw to pick out a winner of the original sketch of Burnbank fell shown below and the name drawn was Mr A Short of Cleveland. The winner has been informed and the sketch will be dispatched shortly.
However, as the idea was so popular and successful I have decided to repeat the offer, this time with a small sketch from Bonscale Pike.
This sketch does actually appear in the book even though Wainwright did not illustrate this tower in the Pictorial Guides. So once again it is a unique opportunity to be in with a chance to own an original work from the Wainwrights in Colour project.
So how can you win this unique prize? You can now pay for the books and reserve the quantity that you require but by doing so your name will go into a draw to win the original paintings. I will also be able to prepare labels and packaging so that customers will obtain the book as soon after publishing as possible. Those who have already previously ordered will automatically be entered into this draw.
This is my own version of a “crowdfunding” campaign to not only keep check on the ever growing demand for the 5000 copies of the book but will also help to pay the rather large printing bill which comes with printing such a large full colour 360 page book. As you probably realise, there is no big sponsor or backer for the production of this work so it all comes down to my hard work, quality of artwork and design and the generosity of those who have faith in me.
To be in with a chance of winning the above sketch you must have fully paid for a copy of the book by 23.59 on Wednesday 25th January- don’t leave it too late!
