Our thanks to all of you who entered our latest competition. It was clear that you were keen to win an Artist's Proof of Scarfe On The Wall, the stunning limited edition hand-signed and numbered box set commemorating Pink Floyd's The Wall project (more details, and exclusive pictures, here). And who could blame you?
The box set, a highly desirable collaboration between the artist Gerald Scarfe, Roger Waters, and the luxury book publisher Gloria, is limited to just 300 copies, and includes a book that you simply cannot buy anywhere else. And, thanks to our friends at Gloria, we had an (even rarer!) artist's proof of the set to give away. The winner has now been picked from all the correct entries, and we have pleasure in announcing just who will be receiving this wonderful prize...
The set comprises a "monograph" book (hand signed by Roger Waters)
which can ONLY be bought as part of this box set, and eight limited
edition prints, shown here
exclusively - five pieces of artwork used at the time, along with three
prints that have never been seen before now, inspired by Comfortably
Numb, the judge and the band on-stage at Earls Court. All of the prints,
16"x20" giclée prints on thick matt art paper, are numbered and hand
signed by Gerald Scarfe.
The book contains an in-depth interview with Gerald Scarfe about his
creative journey and involvement with Pink Floyd in the concert
performances and film of "The Wall".
Together with this interview, the
38 page book contains his preparatory sketches and artwork for the
album and animation, offering a fascinating insight into the talents
behind one of the most iconic concept albums of all time.
There are also rare archive photos (such as the picture to the left) included in the book, many of which have been shown for the first time.
I'm sure you'll agree, this is an incredible prize, to which we again thank Gloria Luxury Books for letting us offer to you!
Without further ado, the person who was picked out of the pile of correct entries by an independent adjudicator, was: Paul Powell, from North Carolina, USA. Well done Paul, and commiserations to those who weren't lucky this time around.
There's more details of the box set and exclusive pictures here, and orders for the box set can be placed over at www.glorialuxury.com. The set has sold very well, but Gloria do still have some available. And don't forget your exclusive Brain Damage discount of 5% - just tell them you heard about the set over at Brain Damage!
