    The gratitude, the link, the bracelet, PLUS a VERY SPECIAL, limited edition "À la Dan Kabbalah" letterpress print - with one hand-painted Hebrew letter in the bunch, instead of a Dan. These editions of 12, printed by Bill Roberts of Bottle of Smoke Press, will also be signed and numbered by the artist.

    Note: There are 16 editions of 12, ranging from Alef to Nun, each taking the place of a Dan from right to left. Please specify which letter you prefer in an email and I will get you your favorite letter and inform you of how many are left in each Hebrew letter's edition. Otherwise I would have had to make 16 different rewards here.
