So the dust has settled, the hangovers have faded and a fair few of the Special Editions are being flipped on Ebay already… The VNA 16 launch party was immense. Held at Pictures on Walls with support from Oranjeboom, Kopparberg, Edding and Pop Up Projects.
Thank you so much to everyone for coming out to the launch party. For those who queued (Some for over 4 hours) and for those who just came out for a drink and to check out the latest issue. Pictures On Walls were the perfect hosts, so thanks to the POW staff and of course the VNA staff for making it a great night. Most of all I must thank the amazing artist Invader. This guy is such a legend… He welcomed us into his studio in Paris, answered all our questions, helped us out with imagery for the feature, designed the limited edition cover, envelope and stickers then came over to London to sign them for us. A true gent… Thank you Invader.
Im sorry to the few who didn’t get one of the Invader VNA 16 Special Editions. We tried to make it as fair as possible but there could only be 80 sold on the night.
It makes me quite sad to see all those VNA 16 Specials on Ebay but I know it cant be helped I guess, I just wish they ended up in the hands of our amazing fans and supporters.
Oh and dont forget there is 50 Special Eds mixed into our distribution so go find them! (VNA is available in all good bookstores and galleries worldwide)
Heres some snaps from the launch…
