I do find it humorous that once the price gets past a certain point "screen printing" become "serigraphy" :lol:

But yeah, it does appear to be the Heliogravure aspect that's boosting the price. From what that link above described, it's a costly process.

sounds like an engraving/intaglio process. much more labor intensive. cant say the price is justifiable.

You would not have a chance anyway :lol:


Pass for me. In all likelihood, it would have been a pass at $55 as well.

Should be easy to score unless they pull a "fake" sell-out and then release small batches randomly throughout the rest of the day.

I like the image but there is no way I will spend $250 on it. I'll do what I did with similar Commanda image....wait a couple years then buy one for $125.

I also really like this one, but not stoked on that price tag... might have to follow your lead - it is a pretty large edition...

Wonder why the photographer doesnt get to sign the prints as well?
