Spirit Canoe : Soaring the Shadow Spiral

Announcing a Blood of the Black Owl / Samaritan Press collaboration, “Spirit Canoe : Soaring the Shadow Spiral”

Every aspect of this collaborative release was crafted with our collective heart and hands.

  • Three tracks of medicinal soundscapes by Chet Scott aka Blood of the Black Owl recorded via Vardlokkur’s mystery , Nidstang, skull callers, elk bladder shakers, and many more ritual instruments. Dubbed in real time on a hand stamped antique gold cassette.
  • A 12x12” two color letterpress print by DV D’Andrea. This drawing was drawn by hand with direct transmission from the Spirit Canoe. It was printed on the C&P platen press (mfg 1910) with foot pumped treadle on 100% cotton rag paper. Signed and numbered in an edition of 150.
  • A booklet with custom illustrations throughout. Also printed in-house at Samaritan Press.
  • Custom cassette wrap printed in gold letterpress on black.

Original artwork by David V. D'Andrea unless stated otherwise.

All posters are official and authorized by the band.

Posters are printed in one time editions. They are not reprinted unless specifically noted.

All posters are shipped in a sturdy cardboard tube. Posters are carefully rolled with a kraft paper wrapping.

Domestic (US) orders are shipped via USPS Priority. Tracking numbers are emailed once the order is fulfilled.

International orders are shipped via USPS First Class. This service includes a tracking number although it only displays information up to the point of leaving North America and arriving in the buyer's country. Often the longest delays occur after that point and there is no good solution other than waiting it out.

Rates (especially International) have increased in recent years. I charge a flat rate which includes approximate postage plus packaging materials. 

If you are interested in an expedited shipment via UPS, Fed Ex, or DHL please contact me before placing your order. 

I generally ship orders mid-week and Fridays. 

If your poster is damaged in transit please email me with details.
