Christmas Inspiration | Signed Books & Artist Products17 Nov 2020
We have a lovely selection of products that feature the work of Angie Lewin. For 2021 Angie Lewin has produced a wire bound hanging calendar that features a selection of her screenprints, linocuts, wood engravings and lithographs. We also have Limited Edition Invitations to her latest exhibition, Nature Assembled, which folds out to a full page image of Lustreware and Ivy, Glenarder, The proceeds of which go to Maggie's, the home for cancer care.
We have only 10 signed copies left of Nature Assembled - the catalogue from Angie's latest exhibition here at The Gallery - which would make a very special gift! We also have a limited number of signed, hardback copies of The Book of Pebbles by Christopher Stocks and Angie Lewin - a beautifully illustrated book that is part social history and part practical guide. In 2019 Faber and Faber republished Ted Hughes's Season Songs illustrated by Angie Lewin. Ted Hughes was one of the most important and influential writers of the Twentieth Century and a former Poet Laureate, and we have a number of copies of Season Songs signed by Angie Lewin. Angie has also kindly signed copies of Ten Poems about Flowers, a mini poetry anthology featuring poems by John Clare, Beth Davies, Helen Dunmore, John Heath-Stubbs, Seán Hewitt, Mimi Khalvati, DH Lawrence, Anne Ridler, Edward Thomas and William Wordsworth.
Emily Sutton designed a hugely successful desk calendar for Art Angels based on vintage tin toys which they produced for 2018 and 2019. They have commissioned this new design from Emily for 2021. This years design is the same format as before; a concertina form desk calendar which comes in a display wallet. The design echoes the die cut allotment cards that Emily has created before and reflects the change in the growing year of the allotment. The reverse of the calendar is simple block colours. We also have signed copies of her beautiful illustrated children's books: Clara Button and The Wedding Day Surprise, One Christmas Wish and The Tale of the Castle Mice.
Emily Sutton designed a beautiful double-sided fold out invitation to accompany her exhibition People and Places. £4.50 from each purchase will go to the Supper Collective, which is a brilliant York-based charity who deliver meals to the isolated and homeless, and during the pandemic have also been delivering meals to front-line workers.
We also have a number of Mark Hearld designed cards: his Winter Feast and Silent Flight cards are perfect for Christmas, he has also made designs with Chickens or Foxes. Animal Poems and Nature Poems are poetry pamphlets, perfect to be given in place of a card as they come with an envelope and space for your own message in the jacket.
We have a selection of books illustrated by Mark Hearld - that would make perfect Christmas gifts! His Workbook serves as an open studio of sorts - showing how he works and what he makes and A First Book of Nature is an exquisite hard back book that evokes a child's first experience of nature. We also have copies of Mark Hearld's illustrated edition of Ted Hughes What is the Truth? - an award winning book of prose-linked animal poems, first published in the 1980s.
We have signed copies available of Davy Zyw's book 101 Champagnes and Sparkling Wines to Try Before You Die. Whether you love prosecco, cava, cremant or champagne, the UK's love for all drinks sparkling and fizzy shows no sign of abating!
We have signed copies for sale of Robert Crawford's book The Scottish Ambassador:
'One of Scotland’s most celebrated poets, Robert Crawford has long been a passionate and articulate ambassador for his country and its culture, its people and its landscape. The Scottish Ambassador fuses individual and communal voices in poems that resonate far beyond their points of origin.'
Fleming Collection - James Knox
We were thrilled to host James Knox, Director of The Fleming Collection, and his book launch for The Scottish Colourists last year. We have a number of signed copies of this book, which tells the story of the lives and art of SJ Peploe, JD Fergusson, FCB Cadell and Leslie Hunter, and is the perfect stocking filler! We also have copies of his newest release - The Glasgow Girls and Boys, which, for the first time, discusses the work of the pioneering women alongside their male counterparts.
