Final Countdown I just received an email from the Nelly Duff gallery with news that they are releasing the final few editions of Shutternumbers by street artist, Eine. The original prints feature 37 hand printed colours are highly sought after—even these artist proofs are now going for £999 ($1540)! it is a thing a beauty (do you think this is where Apple chose the colour palette for iOS7?), though the spacing of the 10 feels a little awkward. 70 x 50 cm, 37 colour screen print, somerset satin...
