"Darth Vader" limited edition paper giclee print created by multi-talented Japanese artist Yoshitaka Amano. This piece was created by using watercolor on high quality paper. Measuring 18" x 12," this edition is limited to only 100 pieces, each hand signed by Amano. A giclee (pronounced zhee-CLAY) is an individually produced, limited edition, high quality reproduction done on a special large format printer. Images are generated from high-resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks.
Giclee prints can be printed on a number of different media - watercolors can be reproduced on watercolor paper, for instance, and can be so color-true that they are virtually indistinguishable from the original. Oil paintings can be reproduced on canvas.
The giclee printing process provides better color accuracy than any other means of reproduction. The colors are brighter, last longer, and are so high-resolution that they are virtually continuous in tone, rather than tiny dots.
