Dark Hall Mansion’s full press release regarding this drop:
Dark Hall Mansion is very pleased to reveal our annual holiday Peanuts treat, DHM’s officially licensed “A Charlie Brown Christmas” limited edition prints, this year by contemporary artists Tim Doyle & Ridge Rooms and on sale this coming Tuesday, Dec 15th, 2015!
Dark Hall Mansion, under license from Peanuts Worldwide, will release Tim Doyle & Ridge Rooms’ lovely interpretation of the 1965 Charles M. Schulz masterpiece, “A Charlie Brown Christmas” which celebrates its 50th anniversary this very year! Now THAT’S classic!! Tim & Ridge wanted to express the joy and delight of the perennial Schulz holiday classic by interpreting an aspect of the film that had not been centrally rendered on DHM’s prints prior, and succeed they did! A delighted Snoopy leads the gang through a wonderful wintery session that harkens to the film’s opening frames and strains of Vince Guaraldi’s masterful, “Christmas Time is Here,” instantly taking us all back to our childhoods. Charming touches such as a certain beagle’s doghouse stripped of its excessive holiday ornamentation to instead decorate everyone’s favorite little Christmas tree, anchored beautifully by Linus blanket, a wonderfully content Charlie Brown, Pigpen at work on his snowman, and our absolute favorite, Linus tasting snowflakes, all come together to create a lovely print that not only warms the heart but honors Mr. Schulz’s timeless legacy.
**NOTE-PLEASE READ!** Due to the proximity to Christmas and the holidays our printers are going all out to attempt to wrap printing on all editions by Fri, Dec 18th, and then expedite shipping to our fulfillment firm to immediately have purchases out to our buyers. Our fulfillment firm is outstanding at turning client purchases, BUT, knowing how swamped the post is this time of year there is no assurance all editions will arrive to buyers before Christmas. So we appreciate your courtesy and understanding that-in fairness to all collectors who do not mind waiting-we ask potential buyers please recognize this prior ordering as ALL SALES ARE FINAL.
The print and all of its variations will go on sale at Dark Hall Mansion’s online store tomorrow, December 15th at 9:30 AM PST. All sales are final.
