WEBSITE PROBLEM 3 AUGUST
Unfortunately we are having a problem deleting items from the shop when they sell out. "Sparkle" and "Majesty on canvas" have both sold out but are still showing. We hope this will be resolved in the next day or two. Please don't try ordering either of these items.
NEW SUMMER SALE
Gary's popular summer sale has started with some real bargains. Included for the first time are Sparkle (now sold out) and Shimmer.
AMAZING TIGER ART AUCTION 20th MAY 2014
Gary donated three of his tiger prints, Supreme, Angel Eyes (below), and Majesty, to an art auction in aid of EIA and Born Free. To make them extra special and collectable they were co-signed by the inspirational Virginia McKenna and the absolutely fabulous Joanna Lumley. Together they sold for £1600.
POSTAGE & PACKING RATE CHANGES ON BOOK
Due to huge rate changes at the recently privatised Royal Mail we are now using a courier service. We hope this will better serve our customers as well as keeping costs down.
The new book Heart & Soul weighs a massive 2.8 kg and we will have to charge different P&P rates to different parts of the world. From 27th April 2014 UK orders will cost £10 for P&P, rest of Europe £20, and rest of world £30. We apologise for this, but we are reliant on parcel services. There are three options in the shop depending on your region. Please make sure you buy the correct option.
All other products in the shop continue to include free worldwide P&P.
Those of you that ordered before 27th April will be sent your books as ordered. Thanks!
SLIGHT DELAY ON DISPATCH OF PRE-ORDERS
Message from Gary 22/04/14:
For all you people who pre-ordered my book... THANK YOU!!
The situation is this.... 150 books arrived at Nature in Art on Thursday
afternoon (two days later than planned) I signed and numbered them
whenever I got a chance while I was artist in residence and also back at
my hotel. Loads have now been packed up and will be picked up by
courier (MyHermes) today. Some people (the first 40 who pre-ordered)
will receive their copy within the next few days. MyHermes will send you an email.
I will be back in London today to store the remaining 850 books safely
and start signing and numbering them. More will be sent out on Friday
(hopefully) so more people should get their copies mid next week.
Sorry for the delay... it was out of my control - the main person at the
printers who was doing the last part of book production was
unfortunately off sick for 3 days!!!
Thank you for your patience.__________
