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

My goal for this book cover was to stand apart from the typical portrayals, which focus on showcasing the silhouettes of characters or numerous events. I wanted to depict the collection of stories that is the Grimm's Fairy Tales in a mysterious yet picturesque fashion. I illustrated one particular narrative titled "The Golden Key." It describes how a poor boy clearing the ground for a fire pit found a small golden key beneath the snow. He then finds an iron box in the ground. The key fitted the lock, but what kind of wonderful things there were in the chest is left up to the imagination of the reader. With my design I hope to engage viewers by figuratively giving them the key to these stories. — Carli Ollerman
