We have a handful of fine art prints that are based on images from “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest.”
There are two images made by Narayan Nayar in his studio: One is a collage of 22 images from the book, plus a silhouette of the square on the cover. The other image is a photo illustration that Narayan made using photos of the chest, construction drawings, rough sketches and historical research materials.
The image size of all the prints is approximately 20″ x 30″. We are selling it two ways: Unmounted on some uber-sensuous paper and stretched on canvas.
Here are the details on the unmounted paper print. It is printed on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 308, one of the finest giclée papers in existence. This matte paper seems to absorb light and draws you in like nothing else. The detail, depth and tonality of images printed on it and its velvety texture make it the gold standard in the fine art print industry.
These sheets are 24″ wide by 36″ tall and can be framed like a poster. The HPR prints are $80 plus $12 for shipping and packaging – these prints come in a protective bag and are rolled in a tube.
You can order these HPR 308 prints here.
The canvas gallery wrap is first printed on a coated cloth canvas, dried, given a protective coating then stretched by hand onto a wooden frame about 1-1/4″ deep. Images made on canvas have a unique character derived from the surface irregularity of the canvas and the dimensionality of the wrap.
The coating applied to the canvas after the print is made has a slight sheen to it and protects from UV degradation. The wraps can be hung as-is or inset in a frame, offering a very different look on a wall than a traditional framed paper print. These canvas prints measure approximately 20″ x 30″ and have a black border. They’ll come in a protective sleeve but are a bit unwieldy because they’re mounted on rigid stretcher bars. They cost $120 plus $14 for packaging and shipping.

Once these are gone (we have only about 10 of each kind), we probably will offer these prints through some third-party vendor. This batch of prints is made by hand, one at a time.
