Happy Thanksgiving from Rip Squeak and Friends

Thanksgiving is just a few days away and we would like to take this time to thank you for your interest in Rip Squeak and his Friends and this website. I am grateful for your readership and I hope that you continue to find useful information here.

We have all the Open Edition prints from the first 4 books on the site and the fifth book of five should be added in a couple of days.

Best wishes for a very happy Thanksgiving, and a wonderful holiday season.

All Book One Prints Now Available

We have just added the images from the first Book, Rip Squeak and His Friends and are now adding the prints from the second book in the series, “The Treasure”. We refer to the prints as “Giclée”. A computerized reproduction technique in which the image and topography are generated from a digital file and printed by a special state of the art ink jet printer with super fine print heads, using as many as 24 different thicker high quality ink colors, acrylic or oil paints. Giclée printing offers one of the highest degrees of accuracy and richness of color available in any reproduction technique. We only suggest that you do not hang your print so that it is exposed to direct sunlight.

The Different Types of “Editions”

Limited Edition  and Artist’s Proofs:  Set of identical prints numbered in succession and signed by the artist. The total number of prints is fixed or “limited” by the artist who supervises the printing. Artist’s Proofs are prints authorized by the artist in addition to the Limited Edition  and are also signed and numbered . The total size of an art edition consists of the signed and numbered prints plus all outstanding proofs. If a set of proofs consists of more than one print, numbers are inscribed to indicate the number of the prints within the total number of the particular type of proof, (e.g., AP 5/20 means the fifth print in a set of twenty identical prints authorized as artist proofs). Proofs are generally signed by the artist as validation of the prints. Open Edition Prints: A series of prints in an art edition that has an unlimited number of copies. (These are not signed by the artist after printing)

All the prints that we currently have available on our site are Open Edition Prints. They are all Giclée on Canvas. They are shipped to you ‘Gallery Wrapped” on 1.5″ stretcher bars, ready to hang on your wall without a frame!

Summer Spring

Mar 30

Spring Update

We did a little Spring Cleaning on the website and are in the process of organizing the Open Edition Prints by Book, for each of the 5 Books in the Main Series.

We have also added several additional book items as well as several Board Books, “Numbers”, “Colors”, “A to Z” which join the Board Book “A Good Day for Abbey”. A Board Book is a type of book printed on thick paperboard. The paperboard is printed and used for both the cover and the interior pages. Each page panel is a minimum of two plies of paperboard thickness. Board books are very durable and consequently intended for small children, who often tend to be less gentle with books. We have limited numbers of these board books available.

There is also a very limited number of “Rip Squeak Y Sus Amigos”, in Spanish still available. There are also limited quantities remaining in print of “Rip Squeak & His Friends”, “The Treasure” and “The Adventure” (see “Rip Squeak & His Friends” and “The Treasure” reduced word count books below). In light of changes in publishing with the popularity of e-books, when books go “out of print” they are likely to not be reprinted.

We have also added 2 books with “reduced word count” from the regular editions to make it easier for younger readers, “Rip Squeak & His Friends” and “The Treasure”.
