- print specreleased as an edition of 150 hand pulled screenprints, on black Plike stock (360 x 1024mm). If you are not familiar with Plike it is a very premium stock that has a real tactile quality. The 2 colour print uses metallic silver ink and a gloss white so the image really jumps off the paper.
- hand finishingeach print has been individually hand finished using fine spatters of silver paint and gloss varnish. The varnish sits invisibly on the paper until it catches the light - then it twinkles like stars. Obviously photographs can't really capture this effect so check the movie below.
- special editionAs well as the main edition, there will be 25 hand finished specials with spray painted planets.
the prints are being signed and stamped over the next few days and will be released at 4pm BST on Friday 2nd September 2011.
