Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.

Artist Statement

The Land of Oz is a brightly colored place, divided into five regions: the munchkins (blue), Quadlings (red), Winkies (Yellow), Gillikans (purple) and the Emerald City (green). Underlying this is late 19th century Kansas-- only briefly a setting but very much a presence throughout the book. For this cover, I\'ve tried to bring the two locations together, tracing both Dorothy\'s journey (from Munchkin Country to the Emerald City to the Winkies to the Quadlings) in Oz, and home, the beginning and the end. — Amy Deyerle-Smith
