Shouldn't be too hard to grab specific ones when they drop individually...hope you nab the ones you want
I know, the special gift is what's killing me. :P

My wife and I decided we are going to display the wood editions on the walls around our dining table, three or four at a time, rotating new ones in as they arrive. It's a showcase location for art in our house, and I'm excited to hang a thematic series of Durieux images there.

But I blew my art budget for the entire summer!

I was always down on woods as a gimmick. At the Stout/Taylor show, I saw one of the Stout woods on display...Django Unchained, I think. I good a good close look at it and the colors were kind of washed out and some of the wood texture showed through. It made the print look old. The thought of these travel posters on wood looking old just does it for me.

Agreed. The vintage look of the wood should be appealing, given the style and subject of the series. That's what convinced me to spring for the wood sub. That, and I've been on a variant kick lately...

Well I finally broke down and bought in to the sub. There went all my funds for the Taylor show. Worth it though

Ford Craftsman did a fine job rolling out this sub. Off to a good start - I am excited to see what comes next.

Looks like the regular subs are now sold out. Just 1 wood sub available.

If the regular is an edition of 450 total including those in the subscriptions. How many reg subscriptions were sold and how many are left for the drop?

Or am I :?

Somebody decided to upgrade to the wood this morning so he picked up the last wood sub slot. I'm refunding his regular sub spot now so one will go back into inventory.

I already have a reg sub. I was just wondering how it hangs together. :)

The last regular sub is gone. Thanks for everything.

The variant and wood colors are now set. Picking a favorite is tough.

The initial offering was for a 7 or 8 color print. These have jumped to 10 colors including metallic colors.
