This is a limited edition restrike using the original woodcut block done in the late 1980s by Richard Kegler. It was reprinted in 2010 on a Vandercook proofing press on Czech Velké Losiny paper. Also included is a facsimile letter from a large corporation who claimed this was trademark infringement after a few derivative products (Coffee mugs, watches, postcards) were made with this image. This was done as a Edvard Munch tribute/parody and as an artistic statement, therefore protected under fair use laws. The original woodcut block was unearthed and reprinted in a small edition, at the Western New York Book Arts Center.

In 1992, A edition of 200 Silk Screen poster-prints from this image was made. The letter from the corporation about possible infringement meant that these were put into storage and only recently uncovered! Again, fair use and parody laws mean that this is not only free speech, but also a great gift idea!
