Exclusive: “The Rook” Letterpress Art Print by Aaron Horkey

One last thing before the big sale today, here’s an exclusive look at “The Rook”, the bonus art print that will be included with Suite One of Aaron Horkey’s retrospective letterpress series.  If all of the bonus prints are this great, these sets are going to be completely essential.  Remember, today is the day at DeadArtsPublishing.com.

  1. Wow. Thanks for the exclusive look, Mitch.

  2. My jaw, is on the floor.

  3. thank you for posting this! i was dying to know. totally worth it all for the entire eventual series

  4. Oh well ain’t this a peach. Of ALL the websites blocked at my work Dead Arts is one of them. Mondo, no sweat, dcaapb, good to go, OMG, easy peasy… but Dead Arts is blocked. Uuuggghhh. Well good luck today boppers, pour a little out for those of us who missed this one.

  5. WOW! That is just… WOW!

    This series is definitely essential. Thanks for the sneak peak!

  6. Same here with me jaiden. I’m gonna try on my blackberry. Fingers crossed.

  7. you guys do realize there is a 4 hour window to purchase right?

  8. This might be a really stoopid question, but how the hell do you enter the site? All I see is a subscribe button that takes me nowhere. I’ve entered my email address in it but I havnt recieved anything yet.

  9. @ Ryan, I know that. I will still be at work when it ends.

  10. @ afro

    The site will change when the sale begins.

  11. @Ryan: oh for sure dude but from 10am pst – 2pm pst I’ll be at work and won’t be able to get to the site. Nobody at the house to hit this one up for me means I’m comin up short.
    It’s ok I really can’t afford this anyways.
    Horkey’s got it figured out though, damn beautiful work.

  12. Thanks Ryan

  13. Meh, not my favorite stuff from Horkey but looks great. Hope he busts out some of my favorites in the later suites.

  14. Im having a shitty day at work which led to me spending more money than I should have. Oops

  15. can’t do it from the phone. Hope the good ol gf can do it for me.

  16. I controlled myself from purchasing the set right away and now i know I would’ve regretted it if I did. Would rather purchase a set that has prints I really want than worry about the number I receive. Can’t wait to see the other sets. Should be about 6 weeks before we get more info about the next one.

  17. I really hope they get this first set of prints shipped out before putting up the next suite. If I decide to spend the $1600 for the complete set, or even another $275 for the next suite, I want to make sure these look as good as everyone says.

    Maybe they’ll throw in a nice storage portfolio for those who buy all 6 suites.

  18. I caved and ordered a set, which means with my compulsive completest disorder I will be buying all 6 sets. My wife will hate me.

  19. @bryan: dude I don’t think any of our wives like us much. We might as well be crackheads. :)

  20. Yeh, my girlfriend will never be aloud to know how much this cost me, and since i bought the first, im probably in for all of them.

  21. had to work. missed it by 5 minutes… that suc…

  22. There’s a reason my wife and I still maintain personal checking accounts as well as a joint account. I have posters, she has her shoes. It’s better off we don’t know what each other spends on our obsessions.

  23. @Chad:

    Yeah, but shoes are such a waste ……… :P

  24. My gf came through and got me the set. Im so stoked for these.

    Its not like im in love with the images, but I figure if the later suites come out that have images that I really dig, then I dont want an incomplete set. I want em all!

  25. Did anyone get a confirmation email from DAP after purchase? I got one from Paypal, so I’m sure I’m good, but you know…

  26. Very nice. Just couldn’t pull the trigger.

    Gotta save up for whatever crazy thing Mondo is unveiling next week.

  27. how much where they?

  28. @Isaac The sets were 275 shipped which was the only way to get the “Rook”

  29. ouch! good thing i have a few of his prints already. how many are in the set?

  30. Ooh. I’m inspired to get out my old wood blocks again.

  31. There are three letterpress prints in the set plus The Rook.

  32. The Rook is a beautiful example of how Aaron draws,he only draws what is not there. He draws the shadows of an object with such exquisite detail. When is he going to release a book of collected work?
    Awesome!!
