He's so desperate to coin a catchphrase.

Hey. I'm a long time lurker, recent registree and a first time poster. For most of my years my appreciation for art was limited to just that, appreciation, and the rabid collector side of me satisfied himself with music, collecting rare vinyl and limited art editions of LPs and the like. Mainly from the darker side of town, Coil, Nurse With Wound, Current 93, that sort of thing. I've always loved Ryden, and unlike Trevor Brown he doesn't have my wife commencing divorce proceedings every time she catches me leafing through one of his books or portfolios!

I own most of the books, all of the portfolios, but only a couple of large scale prints. Now that I find myself beginning to develop a bit more of an interest in picking up more prints, partly because I really like them, but partly because I'm somebody with an ingrained desire to always be collecting something (the thrill of the chase maybe), I'm utterly bemused and confused about the whole market situation, which is what has brought me to write this post. Back in the early eBay days, I'm talking turn of the century, you could only auction your stuff, there was no set price, no buy it now. What you ended up with was a pure market value for the item, it's value was what people were willing to bid for it. These days there are plenty of rare Ryden prints available, both on eBay and through numerous online galleries, but hardly anything sells! Look at the big Ryden galleries, Kult and l'Imagerie. They've had the same Ryden's on their shelves for years. Nobody will pay the asking prices. Same with eBay, people ask for the several grands but never ever get a bite.

Maybe it's just me, but I don't get it. Do they not want or need to sell them? There have been a few Pumpkin Presidents on eBay recently, prices $150-200 BELOW original sticker price, and even they are not selling. Yes, I know the Prez is one of the 500 issues, so not rare as hens teeth or anything, but still, is this the future for all of the larger editions?

Don't get me wrong, this isn't a whinge, it's an honest question, would just like somebody who knows more than me about this business to explain it. Is it a case that everybody is afraid to drop prices to a saleable level because it may devalue Ryden as a whole? But surely doesn't it reflect equally as badly if these prints don't sell well? Also I'm sure this question might apply in equal measure to other artists, so not picking on Ryden in particular (and certainly not picking on the man himself).

Sorry the waffly question, appreciate any info! Thanks
