I Will Write in Words of Fire limited edition print by David Mack

Regular price $ 75.00 Sale

Originally, we made 350 of these beautiful SOLD OUT silkscreened gems. They were hand-pulled silk-screens, born in Austin, Texas by ace Brian Rise of Rise Ink. (Only available prints in this run, the variant blue test run, which you can ONLY buy at CBLDF. www.cbldf.org)

SO, we reprinted these in lovely downtown Hollywood, a glicee edition of 750, which we split with David Mack once again. He is holding the even numbers, and we are holding the odd.

 At this time, we have available some signed by David, in beautiful brush-and-ink or gold sharpie. Neil has signed a few as well-- To track down these travelling men, it's a full-time job! 


here is the entire text of the beautiful poem Neil composed:

I will write in words of fire.
I will write them on your skin.
I will write about desire.
Write beginnings, write of sin.
You're the book I love the best,
your skin only holds my truth,
you will be a palimpsest
lines of age rewriting youth.
You will not burn upon the pyre.
Or be buried on the shelf.
You're my letter to desire:
And you'll never read yourself.
I will trace each word and comma
As the final dusk descends,
You're my tale of dreams and drama,
Let us find out how it ends.
-Neil Gaiman

 

This print came about at the request of a young man who wanted Neil to compose a tattoo to put over his entire back. see below a photo of him being tattooed! 

 

 

these prints also come with a 4" x 6" full color sticker of the piece.
