This print was only available for purchase with issue #51 of Arkitip magazine. The print was not included with the issues that were sold on Arkitip's website; they were first available for in-person purchase to attendees of the opening of Shepard's Printed Matters show at Subliminal Gallery on 09/16/2010, and they were released for sale on on 09/23/2010. The price of issue #51 remained $70.

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 Issue No. 0051: Shepard Fairey The Sequel
In 2009 Shepard/OBEY collaborated with Arkitip on an exclusive issue reviewing the then current artwork featured in the Boston ICA 20 year survey and all of the outdoor installation that came along with the exhibition. It also included a selection of the newest fine art pieces of that time. The issue was a truly a classic release as it was a reunion collaboration that we had not seen since Arkitip’s issue edition No. 0003. OBEY recently acquired a few of these issues and decided to revive the collaboration with an addition of a new MAY DAY Flag print. The issue now comes with 3 prints; all 7.5 x 10 inches and Signed by Shepard. The re-release will take place this Thursday, 9/23 and will be $70 an issue. To purchase go to the Books section of the store.
