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

I designed the cover the way it is, because I've always liked simplistic covers on books. I wanted to create a cover that every reader could imagine their own interpretation of the story. I started by plucking the petals off a old dead rose and a withered but living rose. I placed them on a piece of paper and took a picture of that. Then I edited the picture of the dress in Photoshop a little and moved it over to Illustrator, because that's what work with I primarily. I then grabbed a darker hue of red for the background and placed transparencies of the dress on top in a cross pattern. I finally added a type that modeled the time period with calligraphic aspects. - Cameron Swanson
