It is truly amazing how much the firearm has evolved since the invention of the first effective gunpowder ignition systems during the fifteenth century. This print presents the most iconic, historically significant, and technologically groundbreaking firearms in chronological order.

 All of the guns have been meticulously illustrated by hand and are dated according to their respective years of introduction. Additionally, each print is signed and numbered by the artist.

Print Size: 24'' x 36''

Material: 100 lb. Archival Stock

Timeline:

All rewards will be shipped out within 2 weeks of the campaign's completion in Mid-November. Just in time for the Holidays!

Risks and challenges

The risks for this project are very minimal. I already have a local printing company lined up to do the job, and I have a good working relationship with the woodshop that will be constructing the hanging options.

At this point, it's just a matter of raising the necessary funds to complete the printing and purchase the hanging materials. My funding goal covers these expenses, so backers will definitely receive their rewards!
