Sigh... Shag Ltd showed up at my doorstep yesterday afternoon and I'm more than impressed with the book! Unlike a certain error-filled book released a few months back, Mr. Nason and company have released a solid, accurate, and educational tome.

Interesting things I wouldn't have known without this book -

Page 13 - "Offset lithograph" is more or less a fancy word for "poster."

Page 15 - Shag rocks an iMac (looks like a G3).

Page 23 - "California Sun" was initially "High Spirits" with Tipsy #1 & #2 as the show prints.

(I take it that's why "Three Suns" is not in the book.)

Page 31 - A "giclee" is a "high resolution ink jet print."

Page 125 - #119, "Consegna Expressa" was published by Italy's "Segni & Disegni" AND STILL HAVE IT FOR SALE!! Two APs have been sold already (Infernal Intentions & Shag Ltd).

Page 128 - Chances of getting one of the 15 (10 + 5 APs) copies of #123, "Paws"? I am no expert, but I'm going with slim to none. Nice looking piece, too bad the edition size wasn't bigger - that'd help more critters.

Page 136 - #134, "Kapu" was published by Pieter Agle (who's listed as publisher of almost every Shagmart released serigraph). Seeing that it's from "Shag: A to Z," I imagine that the serigraph will come out in early 06 due to the large amount of Shag releases in 4th quarter 2005.

(Wasn't there a few months between the announcement of "The Little Inferno" and its eventual release?).

Page 139 - #139,"Disneyland 1955 Map" has a staggering twenty-four colors (25 if you count white).

Second place? #18, "Banana Liqueur" with eighteen.


Add in forty pages of edumacation from Douglas Nason & Jeremy Cushner, and I am greatly indebted to Shag, Copro/Nason, and Last Gasp for releasing this book.

All in favor of having Mr. Nason be the man behind "The Art of Josh Agle Volume II - Electric Boogaloo"?


The fake Shag references in Page 9's foreword? More than positive it's this one -

(Initially mentioned in Feb '04 - Covetous Neighbor Mk I)

Anyone have any info about this?

I'm amazed by the number of e-mails I received about yesterday's "2005 In Review" entry. Most popular subject - How do I have the time to throw something like that together? That, ladies and gents, is one of the many benefits of being an underworked office drone!

Vote for your favorite(s) of the year on the left!


Recent e-mail from Copro/Nason -

Hey Everyone- The Shag prints are now all online and prices are on the ones that are left. There are a few. We still have some SHAG, LTD. hardcover books also. There are only 1000 hardcovers in the 1st edition and we had 300 of them. After the book signing we are left with about 100 so if you want one order quick. The "Well Hung" and "Silk Screener" prints are also almost sold out with the pre-order so definitely order one if your interested. The lower numbers will be shipped first. We will have Well Hung finished and ready to ship next week. Sorry for the delay. Silk Screener won't be done until after the New Year but we aren't charging credit cards until the prints are finished. Our gallery hours are Wednesday to Friday 1-6 pm for the next few weeks. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!
