The Wonderland Book – Collector’s Edition Box Set with Bronze Sculpture

$ 0.00

This exclusive box set is limited to only 25 copies, and is presented in a beautiful hand-crafted fabric-covered clamshell box with matching portfolio slip case inside. The three Limited Edition prints consist of The White Queen Trilogy (‘The Queen’s Armada’, ‘The White Queen’, ‘The Faraway Tree’). The highlight of this set is the exquisite solid bronze sculpture of The White Queen’s key, seated in its own presentation tray, sunken into a deep surround with the book. The key is a work of art in its own right and will never be recreated after all 25 editions have been cast. Each key takes 8 weeks to make, going through many hand finishing processes. It is forged by London Bronze Casting and is specially patinated by the bronze artist Derek Bayley. Each key is numbered on the bottom edge and the mould will be destroyed forever once the final key has been sold.

Includes a bronze key and three signature prints…
