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 picked The Lost Continent because I had not read or heard of it before, and it had an intriguing plot synopsis. I found the book to be rather engaging, interesting, and ahead of its time. The serif fonts, gray-scale color scheme, and peppered texture provide a link to the 1910s (when the book was written), whereas the crisp lines and distinct drop shadow on the land showcase a passage to the 22nd century (when the book takes place). The final product was created in Adobe Illustrator. The font is Merriweather, used under the Open Font License. The texture is an original photo taken by me. — David Lang
