From The Giant: The Definitive Obey Giant Site
This print was only available for purchase as a supplement to issue #51 of Arkitip magazine and was not available on Obeygiant.com. The cost was an additional $10 ($15 outside of the US) when purchased with the $70 magazine or to those who had already ordered the magazine, although those who had purchased a subscription prior to the issue's release date of 05/05/2009 received the print at no extra charge. The estimated ship date for issue #51 is 06/19/2009.
As with all the prints included with Arkitip issue #51, this print is signed but not numbered. It is unclear what the run size of the print is, as it was not included with all 5000 copies of issue #51.
Arkitip will be making an additional signed, silk screen print available with Issue No. 0051 featuring Shepard Fairey. The creation of this print was to make an truly exclusive print available to Arkitip and the Issue based on the understanding that there was some confusion in regards to information released that the first print included in the issue was expected to be a totally new design. The new design is the same size as the other print (7.5 x 10 In.) and fits snugly in it’s intended packaging and Signed by Shepard. Here are the details associated with this special offering:
All Arkitip subscribers who purchased their subscription prior to the cut off to include Issue No. 0051 will receive this print for no extra charge.
Because of this, there will be a delay in shipping all subscriptions while we prepare this print. Customers who pre-ordered the issue can purchase the additional print for $10.00 (inside USA) and $15.00 (outside USA) and these prices include shipping.
You cannot buy this print as a stand alone product, you must enter your order number in the notes field during checkout to confirm your original order. If you purchased more than one issue, please reference all order numbers and you can only purchase as many prints as you have purchased magazines to the limit of 4 per customer. Any orders that do not have this information will be canceled.
Starting today you can purchase the additional print at Arkitip and they will either ship it to you separately (if we have already shipped your order) or together, if we haven’t.
If you have not yet ordered your issue, you may order the issue with or without the additional print. If you would like the additional print, you do need to add it to your order and it will ship together.
We hope you enjoy this additional print, we think it really rounds out the package and is both a powerful and clever design. As a set, these two prints go well together making the whole package a must buy for any Shepard Fairey fan or art collector.
