Awesome news and a hot tease from BDP!

Greetings from cloudy London,

We have 3 bits of news to give you. The first concerns only UK and EU customers but there's news for everyone so do read on!

• HMRC have agreed to our request to de-register from VAT, so starting from today UK and EU customers won't have to pay VAT on Black Dragon Press prints.

• To help our many overseas customers we are putting in place a new shipping policy. All orders of £100 or more will now qualify for free shipping anywhere in the world. Doesn't matter if you're in Blackpool or Hong Kong, if you hit £100, you pay no shipping. Boom.

• Want to give a cool gift to someone but not sure what their tastes are? We're introducing BDP Gift Cards, which can be used by yourself or by others and will never expire (until redeemed, of course). You can find the Gift Cards following the link on our home page or directly via this link.

That's all for now. We're busy getting our new releases ready, and haven't been this excited for a while. We have new work coming from Joao Ruas (small tease of that below), Roman Muradov, Nicolas Delort, Teagan White, Thomas Danthony and many more that we simply can't wait to share with you.

As always, if you have any comments or questions, hit reply and let us know. We love to hear from you.

Over and out!

Looking forward to another Ran. Will be hard to top the previous one, that I tried for and missed out on every time there was a chance to do so. :)

Got my Moondog print. It is absolutely gorgeous. This is the kind of thing that I would've ended up commissioning on my own, but thank God (or Ortiz) someone else commissioned it and I got it for what I'd consider a steal. I'm fascinated with a whole lot of historic people, and Moondog is one of them. Thanks BDP!

Athlete Cured
The German athletic star was continually ill.
For months doctors were puzzled.
The star would complain of the smell in his room.

An odor resembling hotdogs permeated the whole bedroom.

They are definitely next-level. Pricey but still pretty damn amazing. Well done Ruas and BDP.

If these are printed even remotely close to how his art prints are (which I'm sure they will be), we are in for a fantastic treat. Joao's work is always a feast for the eyes, but looking at it printed in-hand is definitely something special.

Also, Joao Ruas wishlist:

1) Silence of the Lambs

2) The Exorcist
Ya'll see the leprechaun say yaaaaaa!
