This original hand-pulled linocut print of Sir Hugh Calveley could be yours!

Sunday, 24 June 2018

As part of the crowdfunding campaign for my new translation of King Arthur's Death (the fourteenth century Alliterative Morte Arthure written during the reign of either Richard II or Henry IV), I'm pleased to announce a special prize for one lucky pledger for the book!

Once the number of backers reaches 250 (Hardback pledge level or above), everyone who has pledged at those pledge levels will be automatically entered into a special draw; the winner of which will receive one of my extremely limited prints of the Sir Hugh Calveley (worth £425). (a giclee version of this print is available as one of the pledge levels; this print is the original hand-pulled linocut from which the giclee is taken).

The print, from the final edition of 7, is hand printed by me on the Albion Press of the Curwen Centre near Cambridge. It is signed and editioned by me and will be supplied ready to frame. The printed area of the linocut is 12" x 12" and the print is pulled on 250gsm Somerset Velvet paper to last a lifetime and beyond! It's one of my favourite prints and is the first in my series of mediaeval knights.

The winner will be announced once we have reached 250 pledges at hardback pledge level or above and will be presented with the print once King Arthur's Death is published.

Existing Pledgers - Even if you have pledged for King Arthur's Death already (at Hardback level or above) you will automatically be entered into the hat - so everyone has a chance!

Thank you once again for your support for my work; wishing you every success in winning the final print!
