Makes sense! These are beautiful, well done!, but I'm going to pass and wait for an all-encompassing HP screen print :)

Yes the weak pound is a bugger. I'd love to do these sales from the UK but something like 85% of the orders always go to the US and that much exporting is a disaster.
no worries, its more the customs charges that make this one especially brutal (just got hit with a more modest one on a set of the firewatch postcards - always great to get an £8 admin charge on £3 of customs duty....).

anyway, congrats on the release & I hope you have fun at MC (even if it means (I assume) there is no chance you will make TB this year)

I am not the biggest HP fan but those are very cool. I do prefer the book covers though but since all of them are from Olly its all good! I am actually tempted to get myself a set of the french books. Still hoping for a English / German release.

I was going to order 2 sets, until I saw shipping was $60. Doh!

Especially love Half-Blood and Azkaban.
The "sameness" reminded me of this practice: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rouen_Cat ... et_series)

Half-blood prince is a highlight. Subtle Dark Mark in the sky!

Don't know much about HP so forgive the silly question but is that a skull in the deep green sky of the Half Blood Prince Print?

This was the response your printer gave you, wasn't it.

What about having a limited edition screenprinted edition alongside the timed edition giclee?

would of been nice to have a size that would allow switching in and out for framing. 18 x 24 would of worked out just fine IMO

I would assume that the sizing has to do with the aspect ratio he was originally designing for. Olly mentioned that these were some of the original concepts he presented for the book covers, so he may have been limited to the ratio of the book sizing.

Another theory: His Firewatch print set was also 16"x24" so he may just like the size. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
