I hope regular readers will have chuckled at the Richard Skipworth greyhound glossary cartoons I occasionally publish. Well, now he's produced a book of two years' worth of his cartoons, together with 4 Christmas Card designs and a 2019 calendar. All sold to raise funds for the Greyhound Trust. Info below.
I've also produced a range of Christmas cards for the Greyhound Trust again this year, and they asked me to help in promoting them - see link above. According to their page, overseas shipping is available, details on this link. https://greyhoundtruststore.com/pages/about-us
The calendar is available to buy on ebay but beware, postage is expensive.
Regular readers may remember a few years back I was contacted by London photographer Martin Usborn, who wished to visit Spain to photo the galgos, and wanted the details of a couple of refuges to contact. The result was a stunning coffee table book. Here are links to 2 interesting articles which have appeared in National Geographic magazine, the first one being an interview with Martin.
Raising funds for the work of ACTIN. Angie McCready does tremendous work in Murcia rescuing and fostering hounds needing help. Now she has published her second book, available as an ebook, on Amazon. All funds raised will go to ACTIN. Here's the link to both books.
18 months ago I was contacted by a UK photographer who wanted to visit Spain and photograph the galgos for a book. I pointed him in the direction of people to contact and refuges to visit. It was part of his year out to help animals around the world, which you can read on this link.
His book is now in the pipeline for printing. Here is a video taster which he has launched to presell copies of the book in order to fund the publishing (expensive for such a quality book) and also to raise awareness of the plight of the galgos. Please watch the video and support Martin.
