Aaron Horkey’s Retrospective Letterpress Series

June 15 2010 . 04:11pm


Dead Arts Publishing is pleased to announce the start of Aaron Horkey’s Retrospective Letterpress Series.

Beginning on Friday, June 18th at 10am pst, we will be releasing Suite 1 of this 6 part series featuring exact scale reproductions of a selection of illustrations from Aaron’s body of work to date.

Prints in this series will be letterpress printed on Somerset Velvet Radiant White 330 gsm fine art paper and produced to the exacting standards of Master Printer, Gerald Lange of The Bieler Press. Drawing from his depth of experience, Mr. Lange has crafted beautifully precise reproductions of Aaron’s illustrations in an unaltered format, truly showcasing their respective talents and dedication to their craft. Additional production provided by Geoff Graham of Graham Editions.

Included in the first installment of this series are; The Scavenger, Drifting Monument and Goatmeal.

Previously published as large format serigraph concert posters for Fantomas, Racebannon and The Melvins respectively, these new art prints solely feature Aaron’s beautiful illustrations as they were originally created. Foregoing their event related embellishments and produced in a starkly alluring black ink letterpress format allows for a decidedly different presentation for the imagery included in the series.

Additionally, a previously unpublished piece, entitled The Rook has been created exclusively as a complimentary bonus print for Suite 1 buyers as a token of appreciation for your support. The first of six new illustrations, they will together represent Aaron’s interpretation of the pieces of the classic game of chess.

Suite 1 is priced at $260 and will be offered for four hours on June 18, from 10am until 2pm Pacific Standard Time. These editions will be limited solely to the orders received during this ordering period and will not be reprinted. Purchasers of Suite 1 will also have their specific edition number reserved for them for the entirety of the series with no obligation or commitment. Due to logistical constraints, this service is unfortunately only available with this initial offering.

As this ordering period will determine the edition size, please allow approximately 4 weeks for production and fulfillment of this pre-sale release.

Additionally, the prints included in Suite 1 are also offered individually with the exception of The Rook.

9" x 16 5/8"

DA003 – Drifting Monument (Racebannon):

The Ricoh GR camera has a long history within Stussy’s roots. From the late 90’s onto today, the GR’s stealth design, easy-carry pocket size and ability to capture all the grit of the streets, has made the GR an icon within our culture.

In celebration of the collaboration of the Stussy x GRIII Digital camera, we wanted to share the GRIII’s capabilities by way of creation. We’ve given 10 photographer friends the GRIII to shoot what they see and feel.

Participating artists include: Angela Boatwright, Kenneth Cappello, Reggie Casagrande, Josh Cheuse, Atiba Jefferson, Tyrone Lebon, Ari Marcopoulos, Juan Puente, Peter Sutherland, and Rip Zinger.

June 17th – 20th
Opening reception Thursday June 17th, 8-11pm
