November in Paris, Texas

Hi and welcome to our very first ever blog post!

As you'll quickly find out, we at Objet Petit a have been busy setting up new projects for the coming year. And boy do we have exciting things coming!

Below you will find information about our next release, a fantastic project with one of our absolute favourite artists.

We hope you'll enjoy it. And if you want to know more, as usual, don't hesitate to follow us on Facebook and Instagram or to send us an email at info@objetpetitapress.com

And don't forget to spread the word! We're still very young and we could use all the help we can get. The more people know about us, the more projects we'll be able to bring to fruition.

NEW RELEASE

Paris Texas by Wim Wenders

If you're following us on Instagram, you may have already guessed it, our next release is PARIS, TEXAS by none other than the amazingly talented Belgian artist LAURENT DURIEUX.

Laurent needs no introduction. His work for Mondo and Nautilus as well as for big movie studios has made him one of the most celebrated artists in the field and has garnered him multiple awards.

We could not be happier to present this new release. Wim Wenders's masterpiece PARIS, TEXAS may be one of the best movies of all times. Winner of a Palme d'Or, as well as of the FIPRESCI Prize and the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury at the 1994 Cannes Films Festival, it is one of the most celebrated films of the last 30 years. It is also criminally under-represented in the poster scene. Well, no more...

Officially licensed by AX1 Entertainment, this project will not work exactly like our other sales. We will eventually put the print on sale as usual on our website, but before this, we decided to give our customers an opportunity to reserve a print early in the process by purchasing a SILVER TICKET. This ticket will give you early, exclusive access to the print(s)  when they become available and will give you the chance of purchasing either a regular, a variant or a set (within stock availability), using your ticket towards your purchase (meaning the price of your ticket will be deducted from your total cost when you purchase the print(s)). Each ticket guarantees you access to one copy of the regular edition. The variant edition will be printed in a smaller quantity and will be available on a first-come-first-served basis.

As you may have guessed, this means you will be purchasing a ticket without having seen the artwork. We are working very closely with Laurent and the studio on the art as we speak, and we expect a full reveal sometimes in late Spring-early Summer 2020. We fully understand that committing to a print you haven't seen is a big ask but if you know Laurent's work and if, like us you've been consistently amazed by its quality, you know you're not going to regret this. 

You will also be given all the details as to the price of the print(s) and their edition size before purchasing any ticket. An email will be sent to all those who signed up for our newsletter with the details and they will be available on the product page once the tickets go live so you know what you are committing to in advance.

To make the deal a little bit sweeter, if you decide to purchase a ticket, you will be sent exclusive work in progress updates. You will get to see how the art is advancing and, when it is finally ready, you will be the very first to see the print in all of its glory.

Silver tickets will cost €45 and will go on sale on THURSDAY 14 NOVEMBER at 17:00 (GMT) on our website. Purchases will be limited to 2 tickets per household and will be available to EU customers only. Any order from outside the EU will be automatically cancelled and refunded.
