That books looks sweet. I don't see anything about it being signed, although I know 1500 is a lot of times to sign an autograph.

I have the more recent two 1st edition signed hardcover books of ladies and two older books that are softcovers.

The book will not be sold signed (they will be shipped shinkwrapped). Chuck has said he would be happy to sign afterwards at any art event he's attending.

Anyone know the price for this masterpiece of a book?

And will there be multiple editions like past book releases?

RIP Florian Schneider, Kraftwerk co-founder, dies aged 73. Was fortunate to see them live at the Hollywood Bowl a few years back. One of my favorite non lady Sperry prints !

Funny covid story! A whiiiiile ago I bought a Sperry wood panel from Spoke. I also bought an Invocation but not in the same order. Panel arrived, unpacked it, gorge, happy as a clam. Totally forgot about the Invocation... lol So last week I go to recycle the big box that the panel came in that has been sitting under my deck for months, and as I'm about to fold it up, I realize there is something else in the box. Ha, you know where this is going - the Invocation is in-between 2 pieces of cardboard in the back of the box! And not only that, the piece that is pictured below was in there too! Score! Love the Sperry Floral. It is about 10" X 14" or so. Unsigned, numbered edition of 200. Anyone know what the name of this one is? Really nice metallic gold ink. Wish he did more of this type of thing.
