It’s the time of year for letters and cards. Even *I*, self-confessed hater of fan mail, have sent a Christmas card to Mr A.
I suppose my previous three communications via mail have worn my resistance down. It felt like a gesture of politeness, simply sending a message of thanks to someone who has delighted me with his work this year, and inspired many generous charity donations again. Moreover, with RA already announcing his plans for spending Christmas in his native England, this time of year seems the perfect opportunity to write to him and request an autograph if you so wish, because there is a high chance that he is going to pick up the heap of fan mail that is bound to have accumulated at his London-based agents’ over the last while.
And that is where today’s prize comes handy. Or rather today’s two prizes, because I am raffling 2 sets of Royal Mail stamps – to the value of £2 each (the exact postage you need to enclose to a request for an autograph). So if you have always wanted to request an autograph but wondered how to procure the return mail postage as required, here is your chance to get the problem sorted.
Fan service: This is the address you should send your fan mail to:
c/o United Agents
12-26 Lexington Street
According to reliable information via RAnet, you have better chances of receiving a signed photo back if you enclose
- A large stamped addressed envelope (C4 size = 229mm x 324mm = 9 inches x 12.8 inches).
- If you live in the UK a “Large” stamp is required.
- For those outside the UK, please send the postage equivalent of £2 sterling.
A big thank you to Hariclea who once again procured the stamps for me at the post office.
So, there are two chances to win today. To be in the raffle simply leave a comment on this post. The raffle is open until at 7am GMT tomorrow, December 14, 2017. The raffle items will be sent anywhere in the world, no P&P costs either. The two winners to be announced in Day 2 post, tomorrow.
