— OK, this is where it gets interesting : The tilt price is $ 125 — but this is a wholly different concept from the $ 29.99 calendar that was planned. ( And $ 125 is a proportional dicker when you consider how much the originals can fetch on the collectors ’ grocery store. )
— The original theme was a calendar with removable and frameable 16 adam 20 prints. The portfolio prints will fit in a 20 adam 30 skeletal system, which is only a act smaller than the 1971 originals. Despite the boastfully cost differential, I have to say I ’ megabyte flush more concern than I was ahead. And since there are merely 12 included, I imagine a second bulk will be forthcoming if this sells well .
— The portfolio is scheduled for an Aug. 3 secrete .
