Obviously, I'm pretty stoked about this since I've said previously that I've been looking for some PRR artwork/posters etc, but the limited options in terms of quality and variety prior to this have held me back from getting anything. So this is much more what I was looking for, and I'm after one of the "Love Conquers All" prints for starters!
Anyway, just thought you guys might like to know this, since I'm sure I wasn't the only one who was interested in some PRR artwork goodness...

Oooh! That's really very cool indeed! I quite like the pictures there actually, much better than what was in the actual inlay, in my opnion, especially without writing all over them. But what's really exciting is the prospect of more work up on this site in the future. Thanks so much for the heads up, Lawrie (and Chloe!)
The look of some of the pieces is a bit too much NIN-video territory for me. Not that I'm anything of an art critic in the slightest, but some of the pieces are a bit too far out for my own personal taste. I'm looking into getting a "Love Conquers All" print though, because I do like the look of that and it is the most readily identifiable PRR-related piece available. I also really like "Black and Pale Grey on Black", but budget constraints mean I'm going to have to put that on the backburner for the time being.

They're all just a bit too creepy for me I think, as obviously clever as they are, I don't know if I'd be able to sleep with some of them looking down on me! I think I'll be sticking with my AVO poster and maybe getting an album cover canvas done when I have a bit of money, to complete my set.
Prices are up on the site. Click on the thumbnails of any of the ones for sale (under the 'Buy' tab), and then once the thumbnail enlarges to a full-screen shot of the piece, click on the "X limited edition prints available for sale" link underneath. Takes you through to information on the price and buying the piece.
Dead-thread bump, but I *finally* got my hands on the two prints I wanted from Chloë last weekend. Got the Love Conquers All print (the cover-art for AVO) and the Grey And Pale Grey On Black print (the cover-art for the Deus Ex Machina single, as it later turned out).
Ended up meeting Chloë in London to pick up the prints (as I was already going in to pick up a framed set of the special edition The Lost Riots artwork from Matt Simmonds, of HotS artwork collaborators type2error), and I very nearly got her a parking ticket as I had to take a long way round (involving several traffic lights) to get to the right side of the Euston Rd to meet her... the traffic warden was just licking his pencil as I steamed round the corner. She was a pleasure to meet and have a chat with as always, and she had a final master CD of Album #3 in her car stereo! Didn't get to hear any of it (unfortunately), and - and as lovely a person as Chloë is, and as good of her as it was to meet me - for the first time in my life, I was seriously considering carjacking someone... haha!
Anyway, will post some pics of the prints up on my wall when I get them framed, hopefully later on this weekend.
