It is time for the THIRD PRINTING of the Rosary print. As I'm printing these myself I'm able to change the colors for each edition so, this third printing is the blue edition. The rich blues always make me think of Virgin Mary's cloak, she is usually depicted draped in blue in paintings so, that is why I chose this color.
I initially made this image for myself to contain all of the information someone would need to start using a rosary. After I did that, I decided it would be cool to put it out there and share with others so I turned it into a full complete image.
I am not a theologian, I'd rather people not think of this as "the 100% official definitive authoritative guide", it's more like you rolled into a village in medieval times and there's an artist there who made one of these. I consulted with a lot of people but, it's inevitable that people will have other takes on things so, just wanted to put that out there.
Either way, I'm really amped about how this came out. This print is different than the others, I'm printing this from home with this super nice printer I got, so they're not commercially printed like the other prints. I'm able to print with super high quality ink (it almost looks like paint on top of the paper) onto thick watercolor paper, so at the risk of sounding pretentious, it's more of a 'fine art' style print. All the ink and paper is archival (i.e. acid free) so it won't yellow over time and is as "won't eventually fade" as physically possible. I sign and number the back of the paper itself, and I'm only going to make a certain amount. Normally I'd set a hard number but it's the rosary and the whole point of my operation is getting the theological visual vibe out there so, seems counter productive to set a hard limit, but only a certain number of these will be made. For this Virgin Mary Blue edition, it will be about 40.
Also, each one comes with a rosary and I'll throw in one of the kingfisher stickers you see on the back here.
That's it! I've been working on this for a while so I'm excited to put it out there. I assure you they look very fresh.
It's $63 plus 8 for shipping, I have to buy the frames and all the shipping supplies and the paper and ink is super expensive so, that's the story. In terms of shipping it's US only for now, if you're in another country and really want one drop me a line on twitter or email me (email@example.com), I'll probably send some international, we just have to pay more for shipping and customs and stuff. I've sent some to the UK and Australia and the shipping was around 25 - 30$.
The print is 8.5 x 11 and with the frame it's about 10 x 12.5 (inches). The frames are actually wood and have sort of a "naked wood" feel (i.e. you can feel that they're wood when you touch them). I'm very happy with them.
