Dead Arts Publishing is finally ready to unveil Aaron Horkey’s Retrospective Letterpress Series, with the first suite of prints dropping later this week. Meticulously printed by The Bieler Press on Somerset Velvet Radiant White 330 gsm fine art paper, these prints have met Aaron’s sky-high standards. They were produced at the exact same size as the original drawings, and word is it is seriously hard to distinguish print from drawing. The first suite will include “The Scavenger” (Fantomas), a 9″ x 16.6″ print for $125, “Drifting Monument” (Racebannon), a 6.9″ x 18.1″ print for $85, and “Goatmeal” (The Melvins), a 9.25″ x 9.25″ print for $65. You will also be able to buy the entire set of three, plus a fourth bonus print, “The Rook” (first of six bonus prints based on chess pieces), for $260. These go up Friday, June 18th at 10am PST and will be available for a period of four hours, ending at 2pm PST. There will be five more suites to follow. Visit DeadArtsPublishing.com.
Only the first image below is a shot of the letterpress series, the others are reminders of the posters that the linework was originally used for.
