Doctor Who “Keeper of Traken” special print offered in charity auction

A special one-off signed print of a version of Alister Pearson‘s stunning The Keeper of Traken Target book cover is currently up for auction, in aid of The Elizabeth Foundation charity, offered through “Celestial-Signings” on eBay.

Celestial-Signings is an initiative from the Doctor Who Appreciation Society, offering limited edition prints and photographs by auction to raise money for a variety of good causes.

This print of Alister Pearson’s art has been signed by both actors Sarah Sutton (who played the Doctor’s companion, Nyssa) and Matthew Waterhouse (Adric) – and Alister will also add his signature if the winning bidder so chooses.

This print features a revised depiction of the Keeper himself, painted as a separate element and digitally merged with the original artwork by Alister’s colleague, David Lavelle.

100 per cent of all proceeds from this auction, which has already attracted fierce bidding, will be donated to The Elizabeth Foundation national charity, as chosen by Sarah Sutton.

The auction coincides with the charity’s involvement in the promotion of Deaf Awareness Week (1-7 May 2023), the Foundation releasing five new videos about its work, published its Listen! Spring/Summer 2023 newsletter, and continued sharing teaching resources on deaf awareness.

Based in Portsmouth, The Elizabeth Foundation, a registered charity, help young deaf children learn to listen and talk. They provide services for families across the UK.
