Prints From The Flat Files


In reorganizing my flat file drawers, I came across heaps of various prints, some of which I thought had long ago sold out. So for a while (until they really (no, really) sell out), these three prints will be available for purchase here on the blog.

A brief explanation of the prints:The Project Superior poster (designed by Chris Pitzer of AdHouse Books and printed by Jay Ryan of The Bird Machine) was pulled from the cover art I did for the book. The Holy Consumption poster is a sort of "exquisite corpse" drawing from all four artists of The Holy Consumption, promoting an event at Quimby's years ago. The Mother, Come Home print (also printed by Jay Ryan, and representing the first time we ever worked together) is advertising an entirely fictitious reading by "author" Thomas Tennant. The yellow text is a bit hard to read in the photo, but it says "Oct. 27 6:00pm." Bonus points if you can figure out the significance of those figures.


Project Superior Poster, 2 Colors.

15x25" on French Speckletone paper. $30.




The Holy Consumption at Quimby's Poster, 3 Colors.

Approximately 15x30" on mixed stock (white and off white). $30.




"Mother, Come Home" Print, 4 Colors.

14x23" on French Kraft paper. $30.

I know the secret significance, but am not telling the general public...

May I still have bonus points?

Also: supercool prints!

I believe you get bonus points, yes.

Use them wisely.

oh, man! i really want the MCH print but am tapped out currently. is it possible to reserve one?

Paul Hornschemeier said...

I'm doing them on a first come, first serve method, but I do have a decent amount of those (The Holy Consumption poster is the most rare, there are only around 5 or so of that one).

I have a pretty solid guess....

I would lose my mind to own copies of the Project Superior & Mother Come Home posters!! Any chance there are some left & if you'll take payment in anything other than Paypal? Allllllso - would you deliver to Canada? I'm in Toronto.

Beano,

They're still available, but unless you wanted to mail me American currency (something I wouldn't recommend), I don't have a way to accept payment other than paypal. But shipping to Canada is no problem at all.

Sorry to not be able to accommodate more methods of payment.

Hi Paul, Are these prints still available to buy?

Paul Hornschemeier said...

Lorian,

Yes, they are. I still have a few left and I should really re-post this. Thanks for reminding me.
