Templar Publishing – Paper Watch Project

October is Breast Cancer awareness month, with events and fundraising projects all around the world. Templar Publishing has launched The Paper Watch Project to raise money for Breast Cancer Care, a support charity for breast cancer. In the past year, two members of the Templar Publishing Team were diagnosed with breast cancer, and are thankfully responding well to treatment! We are proud to say that five of our artists have gotten involved in this project.

As the publishers of award winning children’s books, Templar used their contacts of fabulous illustrators, sent them blank paper watches from Suck Uk with the brief to be themselves and create incredibly stylish and unique watches in each artist’s original style. The watches are now being auctioned off to raise money for this fantastic cause. Eighty artists from around the country have donated their time and talent to create one off designs for this project.

How can you help? Join the Auction! Each watch is completely unique and will never to be replicated – you will own a tangible, 3D, and useful piece of art, all of your own!
