I'm certainly glad it's not unreasonably priced at $1100. Knowing that is reasonably priced makes my purchasing decision much easier!
I know what you mean. I thought it was going to cost >$2000 because it's an edition of 10. Considering Tim Biskup's bronze Pollard (Ed. of 44) was $800 each, Luke's was reasonable. But in this economy, currently too rich for my blood. Still wish I had one though.
Interests: Tim Biskup, SHAG, Miles Thompson, Eric Joyner, Brandi Milne, Bosko, Heather Watts, Sam Gambino, Derek Yaniger, Scott Schiedly, Yumiko Kuyakawa, Luke Chueh, Carlos Ramos
