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

When I was given the opportunity to design a cover for “Recovering the Classics” , I had already been working on a series of fairy tale illustrations for a book of my own re-visioned fairy tales, so “Grimms’ Fairy Tales” was a natural choice. Hans, the spunky Hedgehog Boy, reviled by the father who wanted a son “even if he be a hedgehog,” but determined to survive, had also become one of my favorite offbeat characters. “Hans the Hedgehog” is one of the lesser known Grimm tales, and I wanted others to make his acquaintance as well. He’s small but prickly and astute, and he prevails. — Caroline Trippe
