Flash Update, October, 2013!

Because of the many inquiries received, Robert Lloyd, who painted the stunning covers for both my Olympic and Caronia books, has decided to offer fine-art prints of the images.  They will be printed using the giclee process, which is the best quality printing available, and they will be produced on heavy-weight fine-art paper.  They will be signed and numbered by the artist and come with a certificate of provenance. Robert is more than happy to add a dedication under the signature if desired.  Delivery time is approximately 10-14 days after payment is received but is dependent on the postal service.

The prints are available in the following sizes:

Large size (20×30 inches).  Image size is approximately 18×26 inches.  The prints are supplied un-framed and will be shipped rolled in a tube.  $180 US each.

Medium size (23×18 inches).  Image size is approximately 20×16 inches.  The prints are supplied un-framed and will be shipped rolled in a tube.  $120 US each.

Price includes delivery via Airmail tracked.
