Did anybody else see the announcement on Rob's site re: the Raconteurs sets? I'd love to have 'em, but that price is a lil steep. I'll bet they go fast though.

oh man. That is double-awesome.

No way I can get in the mix for them, but I bet if you spring for the set you could recoup a good chunk of the cost by selling posters you're not into. That's a really diverse set.

Here is the info for the Lazy:

Raconteurs sets go on sale Wednesday February 20 at 10 AM Central Time. I decided for now to offer them as one giant 25 poster set. I have 47 sets available.

I realize it's a lot of kale to ask for at once, so you will have two options:

OPTION 1: 3 payments of $410 each plus shipping. Final payment due April 20th at which point all posters will be shipped to you.

OPTION 2: 1 payment of $1130 plus shipping. A discount for those who pay all at once.

SHIPPING: I'm enlisting the help of my buddy Dustin Slater to help pack everything starting this weekend. All sets will be ready to go upon full payment. I'm doing something new in that all 20X26 posters (16 in all) will be shipped flat. I like getting posters flat, and I'm sure you will too.

Larger posters will be shipped in tubes.

A random extra will be included: You might get some handbills, or you might get a brown-line only version of a Chicago poster, or you might even get a one of a kind test print or a process drawing. Who knows.

If you don't have a Paypal account, please email AFTER the sale begins to make other payment arrangements.

Chances are these will be on the electronic shelf for a while, but if you think you want them I'd advise acting fast just in case.

OTHER NEWS:

05 WHITE STRIPES EURO SETS:

To all those who bought 05 NA sets and have been waiting to buy 05 Euro sets, I ask you please wait a while longer. I need to make space in my flat files for incoming 07 White Stripes posters, and selling 25 posters makes a lot more room than selling 8 posters. You haven't been forgotten, and you will receive notification soon. Sooner if things work well with Dustin helping me pack poster sets.

FLATSTOCK

Yes, I will be attending the upcoming Flatstock Poster Extravaganza in Austin this coming March. If you buy a Raconteurs set and plan on attending, you can save on shipping by arranging to pick it up at my booth during SXSW. Show me some proof you contributed to the MDA this year, and I'll doodle on your box.

so roughly $50 per print. Not bad but not worth the effort of selling off the 18-20 I don't really want to keep just to get the few I would.

I'd spring for a set, but with 47 of 'em hitting the streets, it might be tough to recoup in the short run. I'm afraid ebay will get Rob Jones'd out.

Which ones will not be included in these sets?

I count 28 posters, but Jones says there's only 25.

Edit: Hold on. I'm answering my own question right now. Three handbills on the EB Jones/Raconteurs page.

I'm sure you'd be able to at least get your $50/print back. Not that that's what it should be about anyway.

I would. But I'm interested in 1 of the 2 Chicago, Atlanta, Euro, London, Newcastle and Liverpool. Duh, so is everyone else.

Not necessarily. I only really want maybe 4 of them. And none of them are European.

If we can get a couple of people in and agree on a split, count me in for 4/5 then. Only problem is I won't be around for the sale. Back to work on Monday.
