There has been lots of Hannah Frank-related news in 2011 - I have submitted my PhD (finally) and spent six months living in Glasgow finishing that off. That has kept me pretty much busy all year so I haven't been keeping this blog up at all. But I HAVE done a trade fair in Harrogate, donated a print to a 'riotraffle' to support small traders whose businesses were damaged by the August riots, and printed up 27 new cards to add to what's available on the Hannah Frank website. The next thing will be NOTELETS - to come in September, in response to demand from card-shop visitors to the Harrogate stall.

I'm going to be doing another Hannah Frank stall at the Glasgow Autumn Trade Fair on 18/19 September at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre - stand K20. The show is free to the trade, go to the trade fair website to complete a free registration form. At that stall galleries, card shops and others will be able to see how the 27 stunning new cards, the signed and unsigned prints, and books, would look in their outlets.

The value and profile of Hannah Frank's work in Scotland is likely to be greatly increased this year. September will see a rare chance for discerning buyers to acquire an original Hannah Frank drawing. An early work, 'Spirit of Delight', dating from 1927 when the artist was only 19, has been lying in a Norwich loft for 30 years, and will be coming up for auction, together with one of Hannah Frank's first sculptures, a bronze Head 1954, at McTear's 'Fine Autumn Pictures Auction' in Glasgow on 27th September.

At the SECC there'll be a FREE DRAW for a framed, signed and numbered Hannah Frank print of her drawing 'Dream', 1952, which retails at £350. The draw will be drawn at the end of the show, Monday 19th September. If you won't be there but would like to be included in the draw, *post your business card or contact details* to Hannah Frank Art Sales, c/o Fiona Frank, 3 Dalton Road, Lancaster LA1 3PR, England, to arrive by Wednesday 14th September 2011.

Do get in touch if you want to stock Hannah Frank prints, cards, or sculpture, or would like to know more.

all the best
