Lustre finish prints
are priced slightly higher.
Back when I started my first shirt series at Saga Shirts I concentrated on taking recognizable symbols - many of them modern - and composing them out of dense thickets of Celtic knotwork. I really liked the results, but I found that it was a pretty narrow vein to mine. There weren’t a whole lot of other symbols that fit the bill.
But here’s one I didn’t do then, and have wanted to do all along - the Peace symbol. think of this as that point where the 1960’s collide with the 960’s. Not that there was any sort of peace movement in the tenth century, mind you. But if you’d been a medieval monk hunched over his illuminated manuscript just when the Vikings (or your neighbors) came over the hill with torches*, you’d have found that there were worse things to wish for. And illuminate. Pretty much as it is today.
*Contrary to what you may think, the contemporary Irish records show that more churches were burned by Irishmen than by Vikings. Not that the Vikings didn’t do it with a lot of style.
About the Prints
These prints are made to order by deviantPrints, using an archival quality photographic process on Kodak Edge and Kodak Endura papers. They're rated to last over 100 years without fading - though no prints should be left where they'll be baked by direct sunlight. The color fidelity, clarity and paper weight of these prints is far superior to the poster-quality reproductions I also sell here. They're pretty much the bee's knees.
You can order a print in either glossy or matte finish, or in lustre finish for a slightly higher price. This is mainly a matter of personal taste, but I do think that the lustre or glossy prints give you a sharper representation of the original digital image because of their greater contrast.
When you add one of these archival prints to your prints shopping cart it will pop up in a new window. You can keep browsing through these pages and add new items as you go. The shopping cart window will update as you add more items. When you're ready to check out, do so in the cart window and you'll be taken through the ordering process.
These archival quality prints are supplied by a different vendor than my other merchandise, and use a separate shopping cart. You cannot place a single order for both archival prints and, for example, coffee mugs. Archival prints will ship separately from other items.
