From deep within the CIA’s files comes the latest release from Vandal Factory: Argo.

Most now know of the operation to help six American diplomats escape Iran in 1980 from the blockbuster film by the same name. The cover story used during the rescue was that the diplomats were members of a film crew scouting the location of a new sci-fi movie. To carry out the mission, the CIA set up a functioning office in Hollywood, obtained a script, and even created a pre-production movie poster. VF Studio, the creative wing of Vandal Factory, has meticulously reproduced this CIA-designed poster, and will be offering this screenprint on a 36-hour timed release starting at 12:00 pm Eastern on Friday, February 22nd for $55.

As a bonus, VF Studio has also created a red variant edition numbered to 25. The first ten purchasers will receive both the variant and original edition, and the remainder will be randomly added to the remaining orders.

The 18″ x 24″ inch screenprints will be printed on 250 gsm Somerset textured paper. Production is being handled by Tim Doyle’s Nakatomi Print Labs. Each print will be numbered, with the edition size limited to those sold during the 36-hour release.

A timed release in when the print is available for a pre-determined period (24 hours, 48 hours - something like that) and then they close. Whatever the sell during that period, that's the final print run number. Now they have to go off and print those up. Eventually they will inform us what the final print total was.
Funny print. I got a laugh. After seeing the poster in the movie i am looking forward to seeing this in person. Hopefully can score the red Variant too.
