Special edition prints from The New Sylva to be auctioned

Some 80 special edition prints from The New Sylva are to be auctioned to raise money for charity.

The Sylva Foundation – the charity that supported the production of the book by appointing Sarah Simblet as its artist-in-residence – will be auctioning the prints via an online auction site.

The fine art Giclée prints will be selected from the 200 original drawings made especially for the book, and are sure to include those that readers have told us are among their favourites. Each print will be a single edition – signed by Sarah Simblet – accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed by both book authors.

We wanted to inform our dedicated readers first. This is a unique opportunity to own a high quality print of Sarah Simblet’s work.

If you are interested in being among the first to know when the auction goes live, you can add your email to a list being compiled by the Sylva Foundation. Simply use the form below.

All proceeds for the auction will go towards the charitable work of the Sylva Foundation
