Did I miss something??....
Posters and print blog has a photo of the 'frame' that comes with Beautiful Decay and 2 Blondes.
Anyone have info on this 'frame' thing?
Do they come framed? Or is it an option?
My print budget is shot, I can only purchase this unframed!
(and I REALLY want this!)
Could someone please ease my mind before I grab the valium!

I was hoping that if you bought both you would at least get a discount of some sort. So with that said, I just got this one.
Same fudge, different drop.

I thought the same thing, at least $5-10 off. Picked up both, now kind of wishing I would have just gotten this one. Oh well, I guess I'll see how I feel when I get them.

Yeah, I think a $15 discount would have compelled me to buy both... Instead, just this one. $54.88 total (due to CA sales tax).

Are you serious, they are cheap and have free shipping!
$50 for a handiedan is a steal.

Hi twiztid_nl, yeah I was serious. The "Beautiful decay" piece was going to be a must have for me at any price (within reason)... That will get framed. but the "Pussy grind" (as EB member roo so eloquently put it), was not quite so compelling. I have only purchased one Handiedan before and I didn't like it: It was Translucent Skin (the 11 color silk screen one and scribbled on by the artist). Within 2 weeks, I unloaded that one via eBay. For future Handiedan art, I felt that I either would have to buy an original or perhaps check out a giclee edition. I felt perhaps collage work maybe translates better that way... We'll see.

Fifty-four bucks ain't that cheap. To me, that's 30% towards a Sylvia Ji print over at Fine Grime (summer sale).

I think i will get one of each, Beautiful Decay and of course Pussy Grind :) It would of been better to use Ozzie money as the back drop as we all know there more colourful and of course worth more :lol: Will be interesting to see what the framed ones go for and what sort of framing it is?? surely they wouldnt ship it with glass?? the shipping was nice and cheap last time well cheap for us down here anyway :ziggi:

Yeah, I popped for the Beautiful Decay only. With this being an unlimited edition, I'm only buying what I truly like and will put on the wall... and the Two Blondes piece just doesn't look as good. There's something about the vintage money that really gives this some 'legs'... :wink:
