New Kevin Tong print — Sleeping Beauty

The new prints went on sale an hour ago, and the gold print, which was printed in an edition of 95, sold out in eight minutes!

As of this moment, the silver print, which was printed in an edition of 225, is still available. (Editing to add: It sold out in a few hours.)

The creators of Once Upon a Time asked illustrator Kevin Tong to create a series of prints based on Grimms’ fairy tales. The prints were used as illustrations in the new Once Upon a Time book (being released Dec. 20) and are also being sold as limited-edition signed and numbered silkscreen prints.

One print was released last week, and the second was released today, and both have already sold out. They should be releasing a new one every Thursday for the next four weeks, so if you want one, check the site where they are being sold — Mondo — or their Twitter account — Mondo News — for the exact time of the releases, and be prepared to act fast.
