Ophelia Redpath The Lemur's Tale

If you would like to buy a complete set of prints, the more exclusive edition numbers 1 to 10 of each image are offered at a discounted price of £5,100, and edition numbers 11 to 600 will be offered at a further discounted price of £4,900. All images are available in editions of 600. Each is hand-numbered, signed by the artist, and printed using the finest giclée techniques on fine art paper.
All black and white images are reproduced from illustrations drawn in ink on paper, and all colour images are reproduced from illustrations painted in oil on gesso-primed paper. Due to the need for several images to be digitally altered for the book, a number of these prints are not exact replicas of those in "The Lemur's Tale". The details are small and may not be instantly apparent.
Please note that these prints, like all artwork, need to be cared for. If stored, they must be kept flat and damp-free. If on display, they need to be hung away from direct sunlight to maintain their colour. The prints are delivered unframed and un-mounted.

In a small cage on a big ship

he seized his chance and darting over rooftops

 

pressed his nose to the glass

 

Down, down, down

 

and landed in an empty fireplace

 

slowly, silently he crept out

 

He burrowed under a pile of newspapers

 

rummaged inside a silken hat

nibbled at a tasty orchid and squeezed under the larder door a long and sticky feast

 

he hid away in a secret spot

 

Dandelion Squiffling Me

 

nothing but a curly pink tail

 

Something was wrong

 

Up to your bedroom at once

"Lara flew upstairs, threw open her door, dived onto her bed...."

"....and cried her eyes out."

 

and polished his magnifying glass

 

the lemur crept out

 

He inspected inks in the study

 

played with powder in the bathroom

 

and borrowed a brush

 

There, with his beautiful tail

 

When she took off the lid

 

That is a ring-tailed lemur

 

she whispered tenderly

 

Lara looked curiously

 

...he nestled deep in the folds of her dress.

 

Earl Grey

 

and birds of paradise.

 

no one can explain

 

Hiding place
