Tucked away in the corner of my workshop are two boxes of The Wainwrights in Colour books. These are only about 16 or 17 in number and they are (or were) never again to see the light of day, this was due to the fact that they were either slightly faulty when produced or I made an error when signing and numbering them. Consequently these copies were to be consigned to the pulping mill for recycling, never to be sold and were surplus to the 5000 limited edition.
It seemed wasteful not to make use of them, especially as the printed pages were perfect, it was only the binding which was perhaps slightly off square, the downfall of having the books hand-made or the odd occasion where I made an error in signing and numbering each copy. After some deliberation I have now come up with a plan which will see these pages being put to good use without diluting the uniqueness of the signed and numbered versions of the book or the original works.
I have made the decision to separate the individual pages of these “spare” copies of the book, sign each set, put them in a mount and offer them for sale to help raise money for a great cause, The Lake District Search and Mountain Rescue Association. Due to the limited number of the faulty books and the fact that the pages are printed on both sides there will be very few of these pages available and I intend to only offer these mounted pages until the 31st of January 2020 (unless they sell-out before that date).
The intention is to use this as a way to help raise funds for the Lake District Search & Mountain Rescue Association with £5 from every sale going to that worthy cause.
It will be impractical to supply all of the fells as mounted pages as quite a few of them take up more than two pages and shipping the bigger mounted works would be prone to damage. Single pages, such as Dove Crag (shown above) will cost £19.50 + £5.00 P&P to fit a 16″x 12″ frame (approx) and double pages like Mardale Ill Bell (see below) will be £35.00 + £5.00 P&P which will fit a 28″x 12″ frame (approx). All of these sets will be mounted and individually signed by myself and will come with a certificate of authenticity. See below for details about the fells that consist of three or more pages.
As a trial I have the following fells mounted and ready for sale:
As I personally cut the mounts and wrap each individual item it will be impractical for me to have all of these fells in stock so I will produce them as required. If you would like one of these unique sets then just email me at email@example.com with the fell of your choice.
Please note that fells marked with a * are made up of a part page and the mounts will be made to measure.
