Gone....too bad- I love the artwork but the version I have is a little too dark for my taste.

Our official poster artist for 2018 is the incredible @richeybeckett. He has created these four day posters for us (helpfully showing off the day splits!), representing birth, life, death and the afterlife in turn.

A lack of Gorilla gripping it seems.

Also for anyone who missed, Richey does usually charge a decent bit for his own copies.
I’ll have a limited number of artist copies available via my site soon.

The metallica store just recently starting using kraft paper. They used to ship like uber EBers.

[quote="FrankBooth"]A lack of Gorilla gripping it seems.

Just received mine today and while it didn't have any gorilla grips, instead of just using tape to hold the kraft paper around the print, they instead pushed the excess kraft paper on each side into the rolled print itself. I was lucky though the bottom corners on mine were only slightly damaged. Hope everyone elses arrives unscathed. When I saw how this was packed I was assuming the damage would be worse.
