Re: Anyone collect old US Bond sales posters?

WWI posters were done in the "Age of the Great Illustrators" Illustration art was arguably at its peak, and the top illustrators of countries usually volunteered their services for free. It was also still a time when war was viewed as noble and glorious, though the poster imagery and messages tended...

Re: Steve Miller Band ACL 11 Sperry

Been wanting to post on this for some time. IMO Squirt's most underrated print, a relatively under the radar masterpiece. I suppose that's because it lacks a woman, and so few have seen either version in person. Additionally, the black variant was dropped unannounced, and apparently largely scooped ...

Re: UV protection for prints on wood

I don't know for sure about the inks Squirt uses, but I would be concerned with exposure over time of colored inks to light.
In vintage posters reds fade first, then yellows. Once lost, gone forever. Bear in mind that print could be on the wall for decades.

Re: Alien Lovestock SF 00 Firehouse

I heard the same tale. As I recall I heard that this was done because he was running out of time to produce the Alien
Lovestock poster, and this was his solution. Therefore only a small number remained as art prints.

Both are great.

Could the mods please add the art print as a listing?
