Leslie Van der Sluys passed away in 2010. A comprehensive selection of giclee reproductions of his much loved handcoloured lino-print originals is now available. Partner and photographer Christopher Sanders, manager of Leslie Van der Sluys’ estate has recently released a selection of classic van der Sluys images from the early 1980s through to 2009 . Images are a close match to the original however they are able to be offered at a much more competitive price than the no longer available original hand-coloured items. Collectors and the public can now continue to enjoy the best of Van der Sluys’ images of Australian flora and fauna. They are printed on demand and individually proofed before release.

Reproduction quality is achieved by printing on archival matt Museo Portfolio Rag paper. This heavyweight fine art paper approximates the feel and quality of the Velin Arches used with the originals. The paper sizes are A3 (42cm x 29.7cm) and up to A2 for a small number of the larger works. Image sizes are 25cm, with height from 30-33cms, variable on the larger prints.

Giclee print is a fancy French word that refers to fine art inkjet printing. The Van der Sluys giclee prints are rendered with Epson mineral-based inks ensuring colour accuracy and longevity. While remarkably close to the look of the originals, they avoid confusion by being 10% smaller. Each giclee print bears a discreetly printed title and the edition date of the original work plus copyright details at its base.

Prints are posted in postal tubes.
