Now here is a great band. Ra Ra Riot. Sara Wood, an up and coming artist in Philadelphia, recently connected up with us to print this 2-color Ra Ra Riot / Maps and Atlases / Princeton poster for their 10/3/09 Troc show in Philadelphia. This simple print really looks great and we are hoping Sara contracts us for her future poster work as well! This print was screened on white speckletone 19'X25" French Paper card stock with a very limited edition of 30 prints. ABNRML saw Ra Ra Riot open for Death Cab at the Tower and they were fantastic. Their newest album The Rhumb Line is something special.

We really like this print. ABNRML cohorts T-Bone & Aljax really outdid themselves with this design. As with many of these posts, the iphone photos don't do the print justice. The hair on this print is a beautiful purple that really pops off the 'jellybean green' French Paper cover stock. This 4-color Brothers Past print is for Brothers Past's Bowery Ballroom show in New York, NY on Saturday, September 26th 2009. We did a limited run of 100 prints and they will be available at the Bowery on the night of the show. The print are also included in the bands 'VIP' ticket package. We are really developing a great relationship with the bands and are excited about things to come. Much more to come.

The last week and next week are an exciting two for poster printing. We had/have prints going for Mono, Brothers Past, Ra Ra Riot and She Wants Revenge/6 O'clock Saints. Mono was our first bite of a excellent and stressful poster sandwich. This 4-color Mono print was printed on 19x25 French Paper "Newspaper " cover stock and cut down to size. As with Zomic's (Sir Charles Moran) last poster, an excellent Cage print featured below, Chuck drew directly on the vellums for each separate color of the print. The show is September 27th at the First Unitarian Church in Philadelphia, PA. Zomic will be there selling and signing this limited run of 60 prints. Obviously and as always, printed by ABNRML.
