Been at work since 2:30am, I'll see about getting some pics before or after a nap.

edit: It looks like before.

Obligatory shipping review: It came quickly through the mail without any real issue. I feel like the tube was too small but I didn't have any problems with mine.

The print is pretty remarkable, I'm very happy with it. I got to see Amory's Dark Light at jlg and after seeing this print I actually think I have an idea of how the original looks in person. However they did it the print is so low luster it does not look like a digital reproduction. I tried to capture it in the pictures below but my lighting sucks ass so I had to use flash. And it's cell phone pics :P

For those still holding out I think they're being shipped out in reverse order, number wise, so you late comers might be getting lower numbers.
I ordered mine the day they went on sale and got 47/60.

last person through the door gets #1?

I was bummed when I thought these were sold out but I bought one from Sebastian and Foster. Lucky for me that they split up the run. I am surprised that there are any left with such a low edition number. Too much good stuff coming out lately I guess.

A lot of good stuff is commign out and Amory's work is very subdued.
His work, especially this one, is impressive on a more meditative level than a lot of other artists.
That quality doesn't translate to such quick sales as others.

I had to pull the trigger. I shouldn't have due to limited funds but it is just so beautiful that I couldn't resist. This whole art addiction thing sucks haha. :)

I just got mine a few days ago - I posted this in a different thread but I didn't know any of Amory's stuff previously, nor did I know Sebastian Foster Gallery but took a leap of faith and I am impressed with both the print and packing/shipping. It really is stunning in person and am very pleased I grabbed one.

There's always the $50 1xRun print of his coming up but imo this one is a better picture/value
