SM0169Though we offered David Derr's Stars Motel Print for sale, his original entry was a 1999 print featuring the Sunny Snack Shop sign. We loved that print, but at the time he only had a couple left. So, David stopped by the office, showed us some other prints and we decided to offer "Stars" as a Swap Meat Exclusive. That sold out very quickly. Now David has created two new editions of 50 prints each, just for the Swap Meat. Both feature vibrant halftoned images of Chicago-area neon signs. The first is a new version of the 1999 Sunny Snack Shop print, the second is an all-new print featuring the Buy-Low Liquors sign. They're great individually, but even better together, though it's up to you whether liquor or breakfast comes first (and, if you're already a Derr connoisseur, where the motel fits in).

Swap Meat Exclusive: Available For Purchase
Limited-edition of only 50 (each design). 30" x 22" in three colors on Stonehenge 100% rag acid-free 90-lb paper with a deckled top and bottom, signed and numbered by the artist. If you order both (while supplies last), you'll get matching-numbered prints and save $25!
