A limited-edition series of fine art postcards are aiming to raise thousands of pounds for Birmingham Children’s Hospital as part of The Big Sleuth.
Fifteen stunning postcards, which have been created by celebrated artist Temper, feature reproductions of Birmingham’s iconic buildings including Grand Central, Rotunda, the Mailbox and Picadilly Arcade.
The stunning Birminatures collection are close-up details from Tempers Window Shopping bear from The Big Sleuth trail; the sequel to The Big Hoot which raised £625,000 for Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity.
Produced by Retail BID Birmingham, Temper’s 15 Birminature postcards have been printed to a strictly limited edition of 500 packs and are available to buy at The Big Sleuth shop in Great Western Arcade for £9.99, with all proceeds going directly to the charity.
Three of the 500 packs feature of reproduction of Temper’s painting of Birmingham Town Hall, and the lucky buyers will win the original gold leaf Town Hall painted, signed by the artist.
Retail BID, the Business Improvement District for the city centre retail area, is backing The Big Sleuth by sponsoring two of the charity bears and asked Temper to design one of its 165cm tall sculptures.
During a 20-year career, Temper has received widespread acclaim with sold-out collections in galleries across the UK. The artist’s Re-Tail owl, also sponsored by Retail BID, produced the highest bid at The Big Hoot auction in the autumn of 2015, selling for an incredible £18,000.
So, if you want to get your hands on these stunning limited-edition postcards, heads to Great Western Arcade and grab your pack before they’re gone! And who knows, your pack could contain a golden ticket!
