“The Flight of an Eagle” Wrightson Artist Edition
Hello Nakatomi Peoples!
The next release in our ongoing Bernie Wrightson ‘Artist Edition’ series of prints will be released on Wednesday, April 15th at 2pm Central.
“The Flight of an Eagle” is from Wrightson’s masterwork- his illustrated adaptation of Shelley’s Frankenstein , and Nakatomi is proud to release this artist edition print to the public.
Reproduced from a scan of the original art board, provided by film director, Frank Darabont, this is the closest anyone can come to owning the original piece.
For the first time, the different ink and techniques used, are visible not ever before captured in a reproduction of Wrightson’s work.
This fine art-giclee is printed at 16 x 20 inches- the original art board was drawn at 15 x 20 inches. We’ve given the extra bleed on the sides of the piece to make this suitable for standard framing. Visible in the art are the pencil lines under the ink, and Bernie’s notes in the margins, giving you a real sense of his process.
Hand-numbered and embossed in the bottom right corner with Bernie’s distinctive “W”, this edition is limited to 300 copies worldwide. Printed on archival acid free 100% cotton rag natural white paper, with archival inks, produced in-house at the Nakatomi Print Labs. Prints will ship within four weeks of the release date- all orders should arrive by the end of May.
Prints will be available at 2pm Central time in the Bernie Wrightson section of the Nakatomi store HERE on Wednesday the 15th of April.
Prints will retail at $75 each.
Note– as usual, the artist’s share of the proceeds from this sale will go to Bernie’s widow, Liz Wrightson.
