We got this e-mail today and will pass it on to you. Judging by the prices of other Product Of God offerings, you can expect to pay between £125 and £250 for this.

Please find attached details of the forthcoming limited edition BECK print which will be going live on www.productofgod.net on 1st May. Product of God is an online gallery selling limited editions from the world’s leading graphic artists and illustrators.

The launch of www.productofgod.net will be marked with an unique art litho poster created by London based designers Big Active in collaboration with the internationally acclaimed musician Beck. Best known for their music design work, Big Active has created award winning album imagery for a variety of bands including Snow Patrol, Keane, Athlete, Basement Jaxx and Goldfrapp.

Most recently their groundbreaking work for Beck’s latest release ‘The Information’ has attracted much attention as a result of its collaborative nature. The poster is printed on self adhesive stock and features over 100 individual kiss-cut stickers selected from those originally commissioned for the album package by Big Active. The stickers themselves have been created by leading graphic artists and illustrators including Kam Tang, Jasper Goodall, Michael Gillette, David Foldvari, Jody Barton, Vania Zouravliov and Genevieve Gauckler,
to name just a few.

UPDATE: Sorry for all the little tiny updates, but I just wanted to say that a lot of the other prints Product of God has are by the same artists who did info stickers, and some of the prints are very closely related to info sticker designs.
