I try to support the artists I work with however possible, so when I got this information in my inbox about a limited edition book that is being released by the sculptor James Kelsey. If you are interested in his book, please read more about it here.

So HELLO to whoever is still reading,

For those close to me, you know I’ve been working on a portfolio project entitled, “This is NOT junk mail”. With the economy the way it is, this project was all but cancelled until a friend suggested I SELL a few of these portfolios to help pay for the $3,000 project, so, that is what I’m doing.

There are 160 Signed portfolios in this LIMITED EDITION project, and only 30 are being sold. The cost is $100 if delivered or picked up or $105 if sent to you. Number 1 through 18 are already promised or sold, so there are only 12 remaining.

If you purchase one of my portfolios, not only will it help a great experiment in marketing, but you will have something bound to be worth at least $100,000 at Sotheby’s after my death (don’t get any ideas – I’ve got my eye on you!); if it doesn’t end up worth $100k after my death, I’ll gladly refund your money, so there’s no risk for you.

BUT WAIT!!!! THERE’S MORE!

Um, okay, so there’s really not more, but I really wanted to say that.

Those who have already purchased one or more of these rare books did so sight unseen, but since they will be assembled THIS WEEK, I now have some images of the final product. These beautiful portfolios are approximately 5.5” x 8.5” and have laser cut stainless steel covers and backs. Every grind mark of every portfolio was done by my very own calloused, Band-Aid-covered hands.”
