To promote elephant advocacy, Roxy has created an artist book:
"ELEPHAS*" is a playful little book about a very serious subject- ivory poaching.
Each book contains a signed archival digital print. A portion of proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust- to sponsor an orphaned elephant. This is a limited edition artist book (25). Physical copies of ELEPHAS will be available at the museum at the panel discussion. Orders are ongoing- contact firstname.lastname@example.org
