The Royal College of Art in London has unveiled some of the 2,500 original postcards on sale for charity. Some are by top artists and some not, but they will all be the same low price to make money for students.

Each piece of art costs £40 (NT$2,700). The cards have been made and donated either by professional artists, designers and illustrators , or recent RCA graduates.

Each card is signed on the back but the artist's identity is kept a secret until the purchase has been made - with lucky winners of top artists' work getting a surprise bargain.

Previous contributors have included artists Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin and David Hockney as well as Turner Prize winner Grayson Perry, former Beatle Paul McCartney and photographer David Bailey.

The cards were sold on Nov. 24. Proceeds from the show, which has been running since 1994, goes into a fund for fine art students.(staff writer with AFP)

倫敦皇家藝術學院公開展示了一些明信片原作,這些作品是兩千五百張將做為慈善義賣之用的原版明信片的一部分。其中部份出自頂尖藝術家之手,有些則否,但所有義賣品將以一樣的低價出售,為學生善募。

每張藝術明信片售價四十元英鎊(新台幣兩千七百元)。這些明信片都是由專業藝術家、設計師、插畫家或皇家學院近幾年的畢業學生製作或捐出的。

每張明信片的背後都有署名,但在有人買下前誰也不知道哪張是誰的作品─如此一來,買到頂尖藝術家作品的幸運兒等於做了一筆驚喜的划算買賣。

先前曾捐贈作品的藝術家包括達明安.赫斯特、翠西:艾敏及大衛.霍克尼,還有泰納獎得主格雷森.佩里、前披頭四成員保羅.麥卡尼和攝影家大衛.貝利。

這些明信片於本月二十四日義賣。這個展覽從一九九四年發起至今,募款所得成立了一筆基金,用來資助藝術系學生。
