Limited edition Led Zeppelin art prints by Ioannis taken from his original paintings for the new book "Get The Led Out"

Get The Led Out - The Ultimate Art for the Ultimate Rock Band.

Get The Let Out is fully funded!!! 

Make Sure to Check Out The Stretch Goal Rewards... so everyone can get even more awesome Get The Led Out goodness!

These limited edition prints by Ioannis are taken straight from his original paintings that were created fo the new book ‘Get The Led Out” by Denny Somach and show the ultimate rock band in all their glory. Producing the art for Get The Led Out: How Led Zeppelin Became the Biggest Band In The World” was a dream come true for Ioannis. 

The book is amazing, it’s even offered as a reward, but some of the art work was just screaming to escape the page and be shown it all it’s full-size, unedited, glory.

That’s what this project is all about.

Ioannis has picked his favorite pieces from the from the collection of 16 original painting he did for the book and wants to make them available to fans as limited edition prints.

After discovering a copy of Roger Dean’s “Views’ he knew he wanted to be a combine his love of art and music by designing record covers. 

Since then Ioannis has done covers for over 170 albums for bands including The Allman Brothers, Deep Purple, Blue Oyster Cult, King Crimson, Uriah Heep, Lynard Skynyrd and Dream Theater. He’s had his work featured in gallery shows worldwide, VH1, MTV and in Michael Ochs “1000 Record Covers” as one of the best covers of all time.

Tell Me About The Prints...

Each 17” X 23” image uses a seven-ink archival process on watercolor museum quality paper and Ioannis will personally supervise each print to insure that it perfectly reproduces his original artwork.

These are fine art quality prints but through the power of Kickstarter Ioannis hopes to be able to provide them to fans at affordable prices that are more rock and roll and less pricey museum. 

To do this properly we need to raise the full goal so all of the printing can be done at once and we can keep the cost down and the quality high.
