Crosshair Ides #3 Art Print Release

The Ides of March is nearly upon us. What better occasion for the release of Crosshair's first major art print of 2019: Ides #3.

Since Crosshair first put it to paper on a poster for the band Codeine in 2012, Chicago's iconic Eight Track Bridge has been the thread that demanded to be pulled. Ides #2 (still available!) released a couple of years later, presented the same subject in a different aspect. This long-brewing return shows our friend's full frozen majesty in a new light, rendered as a big 23x23" 16-color silkscreen print resplendent in depth and detail.

In addition to the planned run, Dan MacAdam printed a small experimental quantity on off-white paper. Though the inks are identical, the different color background drastically altered the appearance of these prints, deepening the sky's luminosity and emphasizing the lavender in the grays. So, these are available too as a special edition.

IDES #3 is a 16-color silkscreen print, measuring 23 x 23" and produced in a s/n limited edition of 70 on white and 20 on off-white paper.
