For their next print, Black Dragon Press will be releasing “The End Of The Road” by Nicolas Delort, from the original cover he designed for “The End of the Road”, an anthology by Jonathan Oliver, and published by Solaris in the UK.
This will be Nicolas’ first illustration etched into stained wood, a process which most faithfully replicates his own technique.
Here is what Nicolas had to say on the project:
“”I’m very proud to present my first laser-etched print. This illustration means a lot to me as it was one of the illustrations that helped me find my stylistic voice and it was also one of the first that caught the public’s attention. I’m therefore ecstatic to see it brought to life by Black Dragon Press in the most lavish way possible and I hope you will appreciate their attention to detail and quality.” - Nicolas Delort
The release will consist of three editions, each includes a bespoke 5” x 5” Nicolas Delort signed clayboard piece.
- A 2 colour varnished screenprint on archival paper, from a limited edition of 65.
- A laser-etching on unblemished Latvian Birch, released as a timed edition for 7 days only. Once the 7 days are over this piece will no longer be available for purchase. One random order will receive a signed 5”x5” bespoke original ink on clayboard piece courtesy of Nicolas Delort.
- A large-format laser-etching on unblemished Latvian Birch, with in-built French cleat for easy hanging, from a very limited edition of 15 (less available online). Each purchaser will receive a signed 5”x5” bespoke original ink on clayboard piece courtesy of Nicolas Delort.
"The End of the Road will go on sale on Wednesday 25 February at 3pm gmt from the Black Dragon Press shop.
