Today we learned that some clever fans managed to guess the direct link for the AJ Masthay print for the Mockingbird Foundation, and placed orders while we were testing the site. While we applaud your ingenuity, fair is fair. Please note that any orders placed via any special methods prior to the official onsale (Friday, March 8th at noon PST / 3:00pm EST) will be cancelled and refunded to the purchaser. Please try again tomorrow so that all may have the same fair chance to buy.

To the clever folks who figured out the link: strong work! While it won't get you an early poster, we do appreciate your help in testing our site and letting us make it more secure. See you tomorrow and no hard feelings!

Is there going to be any text on the print? I'm hoping it is just art images and that it doesn't state anything in text like "Phish Companion" etc.

This will determine if I buy it or not and it doesnt look like we'll be getting a full image before the sale, so any info you could provide about that would be great. Thx
Good question. Yes, there is text, but it will be small and confined inside some graphical elements. The book title will be near Wilson's castle, and it will say "the Mockingbird Foundation" at the bottom. Both are subtle and inside the graphics.

It's interesting that you ask, because I discussed this with AJ as he was designing the print. He said that a book cover design, where the title and author are in large text, often looks bad on a print. We followed his lead, and let him design the best print possible. So yes, the text will be there, but it will be subtle and tasteful. The powerful image will dominate the print, and the text will be more of a "lean in and read what it says".

Hope this helps! Sorry we don't have a full image yet, but as of right now the print is half done. I promise when you see this, you won't say "too many words!"

i bet u all and AJ nailed it. subtle text sounds like the best decision. i want the image to speak, not alpha chars. thx for making this decision ahead of time. you wouldnt believe how many prints i have that i wish didnt have a random bands name, or some other unwanted text. this print sounds like it was perfectly done and I'm going for one. or two.

Text or no Text? Please dont make me buy this only to find out later that there is text on it. If there is text on it, just lmk and I'll save someone the trouble of not getting a print. Thx.
