I'm super impressed how quickly the print got to Canada and the quality is worth every penny. Thank you so much, Gordon Parks is a hero to my partner and I'm sure he will love this surprise
Super great find. Something happened with the first couple deliveries and the seller was kind enough to resend. Great quality, speedy delivery, pleasant to work with.
