Artist Statement

"This book is a fantastic adventure - the imaginings of the reader are, in my opinion its greatest strength. For this reason I wanted to keep the cover as abstract as possible simply suggesting motion through a rotating sphere. If this artwork was to be printed I would have had a simple blue bound backing with a 2 color foil emboss." - Samuel Mathews

About our Prints

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.
