The limited edition prints come with the famous Chihuly Black Limited Edition Book. Chihuly first began his black works in the spring of 2006. He started with Cylinders and eventually incorporated black into his best-known series, including drawings. During this time Chihuly created this series including the trifold of three intaglio print images and this handsomely packaged leather-bound clamshell.
