Christmas special deal from our shop

posted on October 15, 2014
Christmas special deal - signed copy of The New Sylva and free pack of cards

Christmas special deal

Until the end of November we are offering a free pack of five cards with every signed copy of The New Sylva ordered from our online shop.

All book orders placed between now and the end of November will qualify for a free pack of five greeting cards featuring the stunning Caledonian pinewood at the Black Wood of Rannoch. The wintery scene is especially suited for Christmas, while the card is blank inside making it usable all year round.

The card will have special resonance for fans of the book. The figure in the photograph featured on the card is artist Sarah Simblet, and the image taken by Gabriel Hemery while the pair visited the forest while working on the book. Sarah’s resulting treescape featuring a ‘granny’ pine and surrounding forest fills a double page spread on pages 68-69.

We are the only retailer offering copies of The New Sylva signed by both authors, Gabriel Hemery and Sarah Simblet. All sales proceeds go to our charitable work. Supplies are limited so please order early to avoid disappointment.

Visit our shop to read more and to place your order

Offer details: The offer closes on November 30th. Five cards will be provided for every book ordered.
Offer applies to purchases made only through the Sylva Foundation online shop.
Subject to availability.
