i feel both moss and stout will be robbed of poster of the year nominations by forcing voters to break up the sets. If that's the case, who knows if they will even be in the listings for the award.

they were also sold individually and there are several quotes in the Alamo Drafthouse poster thread were people express their preference of one print over the others...same goes for the Moss set. some bought a single because one poster appealed more to them (either the art or the movie itself). this is a trilogy not a tryptic.

I knew this wouldn't be an overwhelmingly popular decision by the team, but it address an issue we have had for a while.

Fix every Fairey set then and every other one that is a set and can be nominated.

These new Mondo posters are in a different league.

850 is not a very big portion of the Star Wars fanatics out there.
The less popular ones yes. The more popular ones like Crash and Locke, no. I also don't think Dan's or Daniel's will ever dip back down to cost. They will remain at around what they are doing now. You will never see a $60 Locke or Crash on ebay. Same is said for this series. You will never see Stout or Olly sell for $150 on ebay but you will see some of the lesser popular ones, which a lot have already, sold at cost or just right above.
Talk to me in 2 years. You'll understand then.
So you think Dan, Daniel, Olly, or Eric's LOST prints will be face value in two years? We aren't talking about the second series...Jensen fugged up on that one. If Justin released a Star Wars print every day for a month and made every print a run of 550 then not all would have sold out.

Yes. The are LOST posters.... They will be gone and forgotten. Sorry to bust yer bubble. There will be many more, BETTER Dangers, McCarthy's and what not. These aint no Van Gogh or Picasso I'm sorry to tell you. To drive the point home face would be what the artist sold them for as well, correct? They aren't even reaching those numbers as we speak.

So, apparently I can't nominate sets of prints for AOTW? While both the Moss and Stout sets are awesome on an individual basis IMO they are greatest as a whole story told in the complete sets. How can I choose just one!?!?!?!?! I love ALL my babies! :cry:
this is correct. a decision was made by the EB curatorial team to create a new Set classification.
the individual prints are listed as posters and as such are each eligible for nomination for Art of the Week (and potentially Poster of the Year), but sets will not be eligible.

for several years there has been active debate about listing "sets" as an edition. this conflict most often came up with the Obey/Shepard Fairy releases. As a matter of accuracy there has been a concern that listing a set as a separate edition could be misconstrued as counting the total number of prints in existence twice. Sets are listed here solely for the convenience of tracking sales. The art of each piece of the set must stand on it's own (as far as EB awards go).
Understood, thanks, but though it's not exactly "Sophie's Choice" having to pick one to vote for feels like it takes away from the other two. Se la vie!
Sorry for stirring up another sh!t storm btw.

Are we talking about a technical issue here? I work with databases for a living and this should definitely not be a technical limitation of whatever DB you are using.

Now this looks like something that could be argued, and as I mentioned in the thread in Art Discussion. Your users are smart enough to figure out that 1) If it's a set and one of the pieces stands out they can still choose the single item. 2) If they consider the set as something that can't stand alone in it's individual pieces they can vote for the set as a whole.

I hope you realise that appreciation of art is one of the most subjective things around, and I don't think your purpose here at EB is to dictate how a user sees a set of art. But that is essentially what you are doing, unless some technical issue is stopping you.

Note: I'm posting this in the Art Discussion forum in the Set or No Set thread as well since this is a bit off topic it looks like

Does anyone buy things because they like them anymore? ...or even talk about things other than value? Art is about an artist sharing his/her vision with the rest of the world, not how much scrilla something you just bought is worth or how much it will be worth in the future. When things start to become commodities and overly-commercialized, they start losing their soul. This obsession of collecting things for value and their eventual transition into irrelevance has happened with numerous things throughout time. It's happened as far back as the dutch tulip craze, it's happened to gig posters, and it will happen with what mondo's doing with movie posters. More power to anyone that is making extra money off posters. I'm not one to try to attack capitalism, but realize that at a certain point when it tips to being only about the money, suddenly everyone collectively realizes that no one really bought these things except for their expected intrinsic value, and well... it doesn't take a genius to see what happens then.
