All the way back in August, Limited Paper revealed Mark Englert’s stunning The Oldest and Most Mighty Race in the Universe, a Dr. Who-themed poster created in conjunction with the fine folks at the UK-based LtDedition Art Gallery. Shortly following that announcement, the variant editions of that print went on sale, and shortly after that…we learned that the regular edition of the print wouldn’t be going on sale until “sometime in October”. For those that didn’t score on the variant-drop, the wait has probably been pretty tedious, but the good news is that it’s just about over…and the better news is, the pictures that just arrived in our inbox indicate that it was more than worth the wait.
Want to find out where and when you can snag a regular edition of The Oldest and Most Mighty Race in The Universe this weekend? Wanna see some exclusive images of a few final, printed copies of that poster? Of course you do! Meet me after the jump, folks.
To some of you, it probably seems like it’s been a long, long time since we ran this article. Yeah, yeah, it was less than two months ago, but if you weren’t lucky enough to snag one of the variant editions of Mark Englert’s The Oldest and Most Mighty Race in The Universe when LtDedition Art Gallery dropped it back then, you’ve probably been going a little nuts waiting for “sometime in October” (this was when we were told the remaining, regular editions of the print would go on sale), and we sympathize with you.
Like it says in the intro, though, we come bearing good news: this Sunday, LtDedition Art Gallery will finally drop the rest of those posters (which—in case you’ve forgotten—is a Dr. Who-themed piece). Yes, the day has (almost) finally come: everyone that missed out on the variant now has a second-chance to score one of Mark Englert’s best-looking pieces… and, really, take a look at these exclusive images that LtDedition sent over: that’s the final, printed-out version of the reg, and we think you’ll agree that this thing is gorgeous:
So, what do you need to know? Here’s the pertinent info: Just like the variant edition, the regular edition of The Oldest and Most Mighty Race in The Universe will be dropping at 9PM BST (check your conversion charts to find out when that is wherever you are, folk). These regular editions are going to be limited to one per person, and will cost the same amount ($65, free shipping anywhere in the world) as the variant/pre-orders did.
