I would order one now but not convinced of anything until shipping notice. Luckily the sale lasts a week so you have a little time.
Thanks for the info! Bit of a warning though: it looks like only the canvas floater frames are on sale, which might not be appropriate for a print. Canvas floaters are designed to mount to stretcher frames and generally don't accomodate glass or glazing, so you may have to jump through some hoops to use 'em for this.

After reading bk boy's post- here is what I take: the invite to the pace prints show was letter pressed (not a release), the actual prints from pace show were embossed and then printed on- not letterpress.
So that makes this his first letterpress release.
Somebody please correct this if I am wrong!

The Pace prints were letter press. Letter pressing helps give an embossing effect. As you will see in this video, there are several letter press plates that are shown.

Cool video! But metal plates are also used for lithography (true traditional/stone lithography, not offset lithography), engravings, and intaglio printmaking, among others. He was inking the plate for Arab Woman, but the final result didn't look particularly dimensional, which could mean traditional lithography. Is there anyone with the Pace prints who can check in?

The pace prints were screenprinted and embossed, not letterpressed.
On view will be a number of silkscreens done with collage and spraypaint, as well as handmade paper, embossment and relief prints, and large metal plates with screenprint.

I have one. Image is silk screened on the embossed paper. Pics really do not show much dimension but if you see the print in person, the embossed pattern on the paper brings so much depth and texture into the work.

the small prints ed of 35 were selling for 2.5k except for the arab woman which was 3.5k
the bigger prints ed of 5 on hand made paper were selling for 5-7k.

I see you still spew nonsense when you don't even know what you're talking about.

It might be the first widely released letterpress but I'm not sure I see what the significance of that is.
They've already said there will be more and this isn't some revolutionary new medium he's testing out.
No one next year will be saying, "Remember the day Shepard Fairey tried out letterpressing? That was the day everything changed"
