A limited edition lithograph of a Peter & the Wolf painting signed by Bono is now being auctioned at CharityFolks.com. The auction, which ends on February 6, 2008, benefits the Bob Woodruff Family Fund, an organization that assists members of the military who suffer traumatic brain injury.
If you don’t have the kind of money required for that auction, you can purchase a limited edition print of Bono illustrations from the Peter & the Wolf project at the Irish Hospice Foundation.

We’ve managed to get our hands on a number of (unused, but a little worn with age) copies of the 1985 Virgin Prunes book ‘The Faculties of a Broken Heart‘ by Swiss author Rolf Vasellari. U2 content is limited: a few mentions and a drawing/painting, plus handwritten lyrics by Bono, but the book provides an interesting views on Dublin’s most outrageous sons in words and images. Contains many unique pictures of Gavin, Guggi and all the other members of the group, as well as interviews with – mainly – Gavin. Fans interested in ordering details should get in touch through our contact page. And from the attic of Mr Friday’s abode, we’ve also rescued a bunch of limited edition Gavin Friday ‘bleeding heart’ t-shirts if you’d like to stand out in the crowd…
