Laurent’s signature is hard to come by in the US. I’m happy to pay a little extra in shipping if the prints are signed. I think some of you will be kicking yourselves a few years from now for not springing an extra $15-20 for shipping. IMO there are not many people (if any) producing better quality screen prints than team Durieux right now.

It's print for a book, I'm just shocked anyone would pay $110 for it, sig or no sig. Maybe there are people that really need a Jules Verne print though.

Laurent's signature is indeed a beauty, but can't quite say it is rare after his Mondo show where almost all the prints were signed.

really shocked? Have you seen how much it takes to buy Durieux Peter Pan and OZ prints now? Hint...it takes more than $110. And a majority of those are unsigned :P

His signature is still rare on any prints previous to his Mondo show. And I'm guessing it will be rare on future prints that originate from US based galleries.

Have to admit, he has done a decent number of book prints. These two with either the reg or var would make a nice trio:

Yeah, Nautilus and Laurent are simply going by the Bpost prices. With tubes and packing materials, I can guarantee you they are not making any money on shipping, they are barely breaking even at those prices.

That's why I plan on picking mine up in person. Screw you Austin :lol:
I am hoping they allow combine shipping, me and bud who live in the same city may order it, and have it delivered to one address, but that is still if they can combine shipping, and also if I can get over the fact of that huge wall of Crystal sucking up the whole scene. If it was just cut down in size and more depth to the print would be created with additional imagery.

I was sent an email about shipping on this poster by Jack Durieux himself. This is what he said:

The shipping/handling fee for a tube below 1 kg (1 poster) + additional track&trace option is 21,20 Euros.

This comes to $29.29 for the shipping, so $91.29 TOTAL, folks. Not $110.

Agreed...I'm really digging the three prints that I got from the Mondo show and This run might be a little harder to come across in the States. Seems that he only has a handful of prints that depreciate or flatline, probably cost 150-200 bucks in a year or two..If you like it and have the cash might as well grab it.

Side note: I agree with the other guy who doesn't like the size of the crystals in the background.....Also think that LD could have killed the crystals but I might change my mind when I see this in person. Could you guys imagine if Durieux did a series of DC comic (Batman, Superman, The Flash ect.) via 1930's-1940's with his vintage style!!!! Just thought about The Fortress of Solitude when I seen the crystals!

$30 shipping?
Just another day in the office. My last shipping bill from the US was $60 with customs on top.

Ouch, Hopefully you got something that you really liked. Honestly I'm debating picking up prints from two other artist (Krause, Millward) that reside in Europe but I keep getting put off by the price.

Can't say I am all that crazy about the crystal mountains either, although I believe their existence in the image is consistent with JV's novel. But if the crystals were printed with metallic inks...
