These are seven (**six, sorry!) individually reproduced full size digital images of Hannah Frank's work which we had done for the poetry competition and which are 'surplus to requirements'. They're done on beautiful quality heavy art paper. Normally £75, I'm happy to let these go for £25 each plus £2.50 p&p in the UK. There's only one of each so first come first served!
If you'd like one email me with your preference and I will send you a paypal invoice or an address to send your cheque.

UPDATE 7 DECEMBER: That was a flight through the air has gone. FURTHER UPDATE: O to the Rolling Heaven, Woman with Book, andSultan after Sultan, have also GONE.
