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

This idea, an anti gencide one, was originally drawn for the United States Holocaust Museum as a new logo/ identity. It was created (provied as part of a response to an RFP) in collaboration with Thomas Fuchs and Stefan Sagmeister but Paula Scher eventually won with a type solution. However, I still believe this mark is more than a logo- its an idea that tells a pretty real story and provides hope and wisdom from it. — Felix Sockwell
