Ace reporter "D.I." sent this info about purchasing the Hu-Hula prints from "Call of Kapu" direct from the Apart Gallery in merry old England:

The price for the show prints is 90 pound sterling. Shipping to the US is 35 pound sterling.

The Apart Gallery takes Mastercard or Visa, but not American Express. Phone number in London is 020 7229 6146


Click here for the current exchange rate for 125 quid (if the link doesn't work, here's he link to CNNMoney's site). Also, the country code for the UK is 41.

With the UK Pound whipping the US Dollar in the exchange rate, in case you are thinking of waiting for a US seller the e-mail I got yesterday AM from ShagMart says that "We will have the Hu-Hula sets at Shagmart, we are guessing late this week or early next."

If you haven't bought the Shag font set from House Industries, now would be a good time to get it before the impending price increase -

Hi folks...Rich Roat here and I just got done cookin┬╣ the books and figuredout that we have been creating quality fonts for 12 years but have neverraised our prices. Unfortunately, the vendors we buy from have not been sogenerous. So this is your last chance to get stuff at the old prices beforewe raise 'em on November 17.

Off-line again for a few days until we get to Colorado.

M-Modern Gallery's "My Way" Group Show is approaching and the Nailors will be releasing a nine (9) serigraph box set in "a custom manufactured anodized aluminum box with a polycarbonate viewing window."

Each Print is individually signed and numbered by the artists and these prints are only offered as a set. Each print measures approximately 9.5" x 13" and is an eight color serigraph. The edition size is limited to 333 sets and we anticipate a quick sell out. The retail price for this set will be $ 550.00 following the opening reception for the "My Way - Tribute to the Rat Pack" group art show to be held at m modern gallery on Saturday, November 20th, 2004. You can purchase one now for the SPECIAL pre-order price of only $495.00!

This set will make a great conversation piece for your coffee table, lobby or desk. Each print can also be indivually framed to hang on your wall. What a great way to start or add to your existing art collection. Instantly change the look of your set by simply placing whichever print you choose on top to be visible through the clear polycarbonate viewing window. The window has been custom sized to show the full print image with a little bit of border visible as well.

It's not posted on Shag's Shows page yet , but Copro-Nason will be releasing a limited-edition etching by Shag to coincide with their "Krampus & Christmas" Group Show opening on December 11th.



A wholehearted tip of my chapeau to Scott for this info tidbit.

Tiki Central has a topic posted noting that a third mini-print has been released from the Enchanted Tiki Room 40th Anniversary Quartet. This one is "Waking Jose."



Disney DelivEARS at (800)362-4533 [outside the United States, call (714) 781-7557] and/or Mouse Shoppe should more than probably help you beat the eBay shuffle.

Off-topic, but have you seen "The Incredibles" yet? It's a mish-mash of mid-century modern/James Bond/Jack Kirby. Check out the fab shirts released by Reyn Spooner too.
