Paul Pope Diesel Prints / Serigraphs for Sale

Friday, February 28th, 2014

Update: These have sold. Thanks for all the interest and help in spreading the word.

Given the amount of projects we have planned this year, and our hesitation to dip our toes into crowd-sourced funding, I find myself at a point where I’m ready to part with some of the collection.

We are selling two limited, beautiful, Paul Pope serigraphs that were created by Axelle Editions during his work with Diesel.

Both have been stored in their original shipping tubes since they were received. I recently opened both to inspect and photograph. I will go into further detail of each below. I am also using some information about each print from illustrator/designer/collector Jakob Westman. Jakob is a great resource and is allowing me to use the information, for which we thank him.

I thought I’d first offer these here before trying ebay.

Paul Pope Diesel Light Trailer Print / Serigraph

I agree with Jakob (see below) that this print is even greater than expected. The inks are LUSCIOUS and ooze Pope. Due to the size of the print, I did not unroll it fully. The print comes wrapped around a tube, within the shipping tube, and used bubble wrap to center, so it was very protected. (Since I didn’t unwrap this print fully, if a defect is found on the upper portion of the print, I will adjust/refund accordingly.)

From Jakob Westman:
Light Trailer by Paul Pope.
Paul Pope did a special museum quality 12 color silkscreen print called Light Trailer with Axelle Arts in 2006. The print was nominally commissioned as a birthday gift for Diesel owner Renzo Rosso, but there was also a retail edition available online and at NYC area Diesel stores.
This is the Holy Grail of my print collection. I was looking for it for a long, long time, and when I finally got my hands on it I was overwhelmed. It was even greater than I had hoped.

Size: 112 x 142 cm (44 x 56 inches)
Edition: 125
Number: 29
Price: $550
Shipping: Buyer’s preference and responsibility
Shipping weight: 5 lb.

Paul Pope Diesel Rose Print / Serigraph

While this is a nice print, my opinion is that is pales a bit when compared with Light Trailer. First, it’s smaller (which actually might be a good thing.) Second, it’s more of an “uncoated” print as opposed to the “coated-ness” of Light Trailer. Also, I noticed a vey slight ding to the upper left corner, so I am discounting accordingly.

From Jakob Westman:
Rose by Paul Pope
A 12-color screenprint which I *think* was done as a 51st birthday present to Diesel Industries’ founder, Renzo Rosso in 2006. Not 100 % sure though. The screenprint has a nice and weird glow-in-the-dark print to the right of Rose’s elbow.
Size: 85,5 x 81 cm (36.7 x 32 inches)

Edition: 25
Number: 21
Price: $475
Shipping: Buyer’s preference and responsibility
Shipping weight: 3 lb.

Thanks. Any questions, feel free to ask.

Just a few things…

Paul Pope has a new line of clothing coming out from DKNY this year. If you haven’t seen it, there was a piece in the Wall Street Journal, and NYLON just released a photospread as well. Pretty cool stuff.

And in case you haven’t seen it, Chris Butcher (of Beguiling fame) did a nice write up on James Jean’s designs for Prada as well.

In other news… I believe we should be getting an advance sample of the SKYSCRAPERS HC this week. I’ll be sure to take some spiffy photos to wet your appetite. If you might be wondering what Master JWC has been doing with himself. By golly, check out the comicstripjoint blog and take a look at his March Hairs. There are some fantastic things going on there…

Guess that’s it for now.

Just for kicks…


Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007

If any of you know me, then you know that I can be quite the bibliophile. Granted, I’m not as educated as Mr. Dylan “Sparky” Williams, but I do like a beautiful book. And, obviously, I like making them. So, ladies and gents, I give you the PULPHOPE limited edition hardcover:


So, it’s a gussied up version of the regular book. It’s covered in Rainbow #9 Silver with spun glass finish. Accented with #93 (or 97) Magenta/Pink foil stamping. Endpages are a Rainbow magenta, too. And the icing on the cake:


A letterpress print which we had help getting made with the fine establishment of SECRET HEADQUARTERS in Los Angeles.

The book/print is a numbered & signed edition of 100. I’m projecting a retail of $100, but that might have to be adjusted depending on final costs of production.

We’re hoping to have these available within the month. When they are done, you can purchase these from us direct at shows that we’re attending, our store on our site, and Secret Headquarters.

And yes, we’re also working on a limited hardcover version of PR2: Portfolio. We love the pain.
