Though screen printing that, however hard Frank was, will be ridiculous.
Chances of a giclee? They did it with Horkey once...

They already set the bar with Frank. They can't put out a giclee now.

They're gonna lock Tong in a cage for 3 months to do this one.

At this point, I really hope the struzan DT ends up looking a lot like that painting from the mist, because while cool, I could stomach not owning it. It doesn't compare to michael whelan's DT prints (IMO). I have a feeling whatever he's working on will blow that away though and end up being a "must have".

Based on Justin's comments in that interview that Mondo would like to do a 100% original piece with Struzan after Dark Tower is released, it sounds like Dark Tower will be similar to Frakenstein and be based off of the original work (with Taylor doing the text as well).

I thought, from the interview, that Frank was still working on it. Whatever that means.

Meanwhile, I just did a quick tally on my prints, year to date from the archive:

2008: 8
2009: 5
2010: 59
2011: 61

Guess which year I started collecting? 8)

If you are serious you should have no trouble scoring. I bet dial up could snag that.

Wait your guys' Outlook doesn't update automatically? (I use that for work and GMail at home, and both auto refresh)

Is Beauty and the Beast part of the Tong set? I'm too lazy to go look it up. If it is, it should be on a Thursday, it won't be tomorrow.
