Awesome wood yo-yo designed by 64 Colors for Steve Brown Gallery! Goes on sale July 5th at noon, EST. Limited to only 30 pieces worldwide!
From the press release:
The unadorned yo-yos themselves are a work of art. Made in the United States and turned from a single piece of Hard Rock Maple, they are made in the traditional fashion of yo-yos from the 1920s. While most modern yo-yos are made of high-impact plastic or aircraft-grade aluminum, these wooden yo-yos are meant to evoke a simpler time in American history. The yo-yo is the second-oldest toy in the world and still one of the most popular; it’s with this heritage in mind that these wooden yo-yos were chosen.
The print measures 5" x 7", and the image area measures 5.25" x 3.5". They were printed in Cleveland, Ohio on a vintage letterpress machine.
This Artist Edition Yo-Yo & Print Set will be limited to 30 pieces worldwide, and will never be manufactured again. One side is laser-engraved with original art by the selected artist, while the other side is engraved with the artist’s signature and the Steve Brown Gallery logo.
The goal of this series is to provide you with a work of art that is meant to be part of your everyday life. It is our hope that this yo-yo provides you with simple pleasure for years to come.
