Criterion art prints!!

I've been making oblique references to a mystery Criterion project for quite some time now, so it's with no small amount of excitement that I can finally tell the world: starting today, Criterion will be selling premium-quality giclée prints of the great work created exclusively for our DVDs by some amazing artists.

The introductory series is made up of four prints:

Jaime Hernandez's Divorce Italian Style, 22" x 4" (Click the image to see it larger, or here for my blog on the process of creating that original cover)

Caitlin Kuhwald's Amarcord, 29" x 11" (blog)

Bill Seinkiewicz's Robinson Crusoe on Mars, 22" x 16" (blog)

Darwyn Cooke's Monsters and Madmen, set of four prints, 8" x 10" each

If you're a fan of these films, or of these incredible artists, I promise you'll love these prints. We worked with the artists and the printers to make sure the final results are the best possible representation of the artwork. Every print is hand-signed by the artist. They're a little pricey, but worth every penny—they're absolutely gorgeous, if I do say so myself. And if you order soon, you'll still be able to get them before Christmas!

As I hope is obvious, these are a labor of love for me, so I hope they sell well enough that we can offer a second series. So, go! Treat yourself!

Very exciting news! Is Allred's stuff in the pipeline?

There's not exactly a "pipeline" to be in yet--it depends on how these sell--but Allred's would be pretty high up on my list, definitely.

We seem to be getting a pretty good reaction so far, though... thanks, all!
