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 took a new age approach to create this cover by using Digital Art. Their are so many motifs to represent "Grimm's Fairytales". Some of the motifs that I wanted to illustrate the most were gold and trees because these motifs were used throughout most of tales. The lineup of trees represents the forest setting where most of the tales were based. I used few gold colored elements since most of the characters from these tales were either desired, tried to obtain, or were corrupted by great fortune and wealth. — Crystal Hunter-Jones
