I’m delighted to announce that my new signed print, in collaboration with artist J.H. Williams III, DRAWING THE SWORD, will go on sale on my website SATURDAY, JUNE 20TH at NOON, Eastern Daylight Savings Time. The print features a young Arthur Pendragon pulling the sword from the stone that will proclaim him King of England, text drawn from “Le Morte d’Arthur” by Thomas Malory. The terrific gray wash art by J.H. Williams III (Promethea, Detective Comics) is augmented by the addition of hand-painted spot color and type design by me, and is signed by both of us. The edition is 500 copies. A detailed description of the creation of the print begins on my blog HERE.

To order the print on Saturday, go to my BUY STUFF page. Note that I’ll be loading information and buy buttons for this new print then, they aren’t there yet. The cost will be $20 per print plus shipping. Unfortunately, due to increases in postage, I’ve had to raise shipping for buyers outside the U.S. to $6 for items totalling up to $20 (like one signed print) and $8 for items totalling up to $100. Shipping for U.S. buyers remains at $3 and $5 in those categories for now.

STILL AVAILABLE now and Saturday on my BUY STUFF page:

ALPHABETS OF DESIRE signed print with Alan Moore, 3rd printing

BEFORE YOU READ THIS signed print with Neil Gaiman, 2nd printing

COMIC BOOK DREAMS signed print with Alex Ross, 1st printing

As well as THE LIBRARY OF DREAM and A LETTERING SAMPLER black and white prints, signed by me. A small number of HAND-COLORED LETTERING SAMPLERS will also go on sale there Saturday, the same time as the new print. Detailed descriptions of the creation of all these prints are listed on the SIGNED PRINTS page on my blog.

Note: if you plan to buy one or more of the new print, and have a moment, E-MAIL me to say how many, which will help me estimate the number I should prepack. If you plan to buy other things at the same time, no need to email, I can’t prepack those.

If you’re planning on paying with PayPal (highly recommended), please take a moment to check that your shipping address there is correct. If you’d rather send me a check or money order, you can do that by printing out the MAIL ORDER FORM on the BUY STUFF page on Saturday or later, but be sure to also EMAIL me so I can put your items aside.

Thanks for your support for these prints. I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
