We are delighted to present a striking range of exclusive prints from Rob Biddulph's award winning debut picture book Blown Away.
Meet Penguin Blue, the star of Rob’s Waterstones Children’s Book Prize winning debut. It’s a windy day, and he has a brand new kite. But where’s he going on this maiden flight? Blue and his friends Flo, Jeff, Wilbur Seal and Clive the polar bear, embark on an exciting adventure full of good ideas, homesickness and the perils of kites. Be sure to keep an eye out for a mischievous monkey!
Rob Biddulph is a bestselling and multi award-winning author and illustrator. Rob was the official World Book Day Illustrator for 2019, 2020 and 2021 and we are absolutely delighted to present a selection of striking prints from his first four books (Blown Away, GRRRRR!, Odd Dog Out and Sunk!) at Ralph & James.
In 2020 Rob started #DrawWithRob, a series of twice-weekly draw-along videos designed to help parents whose children were forced to stay home from school due to the Coronavirus pandemic. It proved immensely popular, garnering millions of views and international media coverage, going on to break the Guinness World Record for the largest ever online art class. Rob lives in London with his wife and three daughters and hasn't given up hope that, maybe, one of them will go to an Arsenal match with him one day.
THE PRINT AND FRAME
The art is printed on Hahnemaühle German Etching paper (310gsm), a conservation-grade high quality archival paper. This heavyweight etching paper has a fine surface texture and is one of the most popular media worldwide for higher quality artwork printing.
The print is framed by hand in Cambridgeshire in the UK, using only European sourced PEFC™ and FSC approved woods. Frames are Fine Art Trade Guild accredited which means they meet strict conservation standards and are built to last for generations to come.
We use Clarity+ glazing which is a high-quality acrylic glass alternative, offering high UV resistance which doesn't yellow over time, is not easily scratched and is safe for use in children's bedrooms.
Your framed print will arrive with D-rings and cord already attached, ready to hang right out of the box.
Including the frame, with mount, the medium framed print is 44cm wide and 34cm high. The large framed print is 60cm wide and 46cm high.
The medium print itself is 34cm wide and 24cm high. The large print is 50cm wide and 36cm high.
