Below is a summary of the year from 

"I am proud and very enthusiastic to share with you the new All Gone, The finest of street culture 2021. This new book continues to witness the creative force and abnegation that defines our beloved culture and the gamut of its industry.

As it has always done, our culture has managed to extricate itself from the general morbidity and continued to progress by renewing itself and seeking creative solutions to preserve its originality. If shining has been the culture’s obsession since the beginning, that’s because it regularly supplies itself with the required means: innovation, nonconformity the refusal to give up—and the passion of leaders who relish adversity instead of running from it. They know that’s where the truest stuff is born.

Street Culture has already given itself a head start in 2021 to continue to prosper and re-invent itself by quickly embracing the perspectives offered by the Metaverse and Web3. Confronted with the meteoric rise of NFT’s and other decentralized elements within the internet, it has not hidden behind the word "defiance", but instead embraced the word "confidence". Being able to adapt to technological progress with foresight has always given this culture a progressive edge. Consequently, 2021 has only accentuated its leadership in understanding and dominating the world of tomorrow.

To illustrate this pivotal moment, I thought it would be appropriate to invite NFT owners to participate in the creation of the two new covers. Like many, I have been fascinated all year by the tremendous emergence of the Bored Ape Yacht Club community. For me, the Bored Apes are THE graphic symbol of 2021, and they will remain in the collective imagination for eternity, as a marker of this era.

In the same vein, for 16 years now, All Gone has adapted and evolved in its level of selection and curation. Choosing has become a (very) complicated task. Deciding between projects that are unanimously accepted, those that strive for creativity, those that are lesser known but have much richer & more stimulating stories, those that now coexist in the real and virtual world…not really an easy task. We’ve soberly alluded to this paradox in 2020, and in 2021 it rings even stronger: while the world is going through a period of unprecedented chaos in the 21st century, All Gone has never had so many options to compose its pages.

Adversity has always stimulated Street Culture in a permanent way, as if crisis was not perceived as a barrier, but as additional motivation to conquer oneself and move forward. 2021 has inspired it like no other, renewing the flame and expanding the field of possibilities tenfold.

It's a marathon, not a sprint, but she'll still win the race…
And We’re All Going To Make It. (#WAGMI)"

Your Framing Options

Box framing is provided with all our online framing, creating a distance between the glass and your artwork, so no risk of ink transfer to the pane. it's the perfect, gallery grade choice for limited edition prints or original artworks.

Shadow float mounting is an option at our website, to give the appearance of an artwork floating within the frame. The mount – an archival foam core – creates depth too, by casting a shadow beneath the artwork. We highly recommend using a float mount when framing artwork with deckled (hand-torn) edges.

As always, all our materials are sustainable and archival to keep your artwork in mint condition and perfectly presented. Simply choose from our white or black float framing options, before adding to basket.

Glazing all our framing orders are shipped with glass. We take great care with packaging to protect your artwork.

Alternatively, for added piece of mind, we've the option of gallery grade cast acrylic, offering superb clarity and protection.
