Early birthday idea!

So, I have a birthday coming up this August the 12th (and all subsequent Augusts the 12th), but for this particular one, I have my eye on a limited edition print from one of my all time favorite designers, Cameron Moll. He did a beautiful letterpress typography based design of the Salt Lake Temple for the Church's first annual design review for their interaction design team. Anyway, it's beautiful, and they're going fast. He sold the first half of the batch (of only 50 printed) the day it was released, only two days ago. But if any of you are looking for a great birthday idea, and would possibly like to go in with a friend or sibling, I would love to have this print.

Available for purchase and additional images at the link below:

I went ahead and picked this up due to the limitedness of its availability. However, I have already purchased you a gift. So if anyone is looking for the perfect gift for Mike (i.e. parents or grandparents) give me a call. ;)

Oh, and can I just comment on the coolness of this print? It's amazing! I can't wait to see it beautifully framed and hanging in your office. It will look fantastic.

PLUS it's signed by one of your heroes, AND I think I may have bought the very last one! It just doesn't get any cooler than that.

Woot! Thanks in advance to whoever buys this from Lydia to give to me. ...Unless no one does, in which case, I will purchase it from her and give it to myself. I really do think you got the last one honey. Just moments after I made this post, I sent my friend to the link and they were sold out.

Oh man, I didn't get to your blog fast enough! The print looks incredible. I need something more in my house other than a Red Sox calendar and a Wayne Gretzky poster. I'm not the greatest homemaker to ever walk the planet.

Sounds like you got alot to look forward to on the big birthday day.

Oh, painful!! I'm sorry I missed out on this great birthday idea. But I'm SO glad Lydia got one before he sold out. It's really amazing! Very cool. WOW!
