Dear brinkmann,

Thank you for your email.

Unfortunately, due to popular demand, you will have to be physically present at the gallery in Hong Kong to purchase the Mosaic book.
The gallery will not be accepting any presale or reservation requests. As this will be the special unveiling of the Mosaic book launch, we will also not be sharing any lists prior to the event.

Thank you for your kind understanding.

so "officially" prints from the run (unsigned)... but then never authorized to be released by invader. orbi's conflicting and vague replies on people's inquiries is really what makes it a headscratcher.

i found this to be a good summation of the current situation...

Here's how it works, and I've printed with everyone from Sandra Chevrier to Dolk, Eine, Henrik Uldalen , Martha Cooper to Blek and all in-between. You have a project, a charity event, magazine launch, exhibition, whatever. You ask the artist if they'll do a print with you. If they're not particularly famous, it's pretty straightforward. Rarely are contracts made, relying on trust, and email chain and spoken agreements. You agree 100 signed, 200 unsigned. You print all 300, plus extras, say around 20 or 30 or so. Artists signs the 100, signs a few Ap's/PP's etc, the rest are stuck on the shelf. At some point, there's an agreement to not release the unsigned, and the unsigned are then scrapped. At this point it would be normal to destroy these extras- but that somehow feels wrong, the artist isn't around, it's not that big a deal, they're not really worth anything, (but at the back of your mind you think, yeah but what if ) so you pack them up and stick them on a shelf and forget about them. Years later, the artist blows up, prices increase until, wow, you can't believe it. You know the artist won't now consent, you should have binned these, but.. drymount. They're worth a small fortune. So you sneak behind the artists back, sell one or two on ebay, drop one or two on forums, sell a few to lower tier galleries.. wow, made 7k already. Then you list them here and it blows up, over a 100 DM's, great, it's official.. let's put them all through the gallery/company I now have and offload them quickly instead of drip, drip, drip...Yes, they were official, yes they're kind of "Invaders", yes your unethical and ripping everyone off.

Seems like Invader has 'cooled off' somewhat and now with no official confirmation from Orbi, the ROI might not be what was initially expected for those with this edition.

Direct from Invader, now that POW and Laz are no longer an option seems to be the best play for piece of mind and investment potential. Along with 10,000 other hopefuls on the drop...
