Etching On Perspex

Saw this today at the London Print Fair at the RA. Would you pay three grand for an interesting visual twist on Mallarme's Un Coup de Des?
    The show was enjoyable,though; a beguiling array of prints by everyone from Hogarth and Cruikshank up to Lucian Freud and Gilbert & George. I even spotted a print of the Durer etching of St Jerome which Josipivici interprets so articulately in Whatever Happened to Modernism? (Simon Turner wrote such a good post on this book recently that I felt I didn't need to.)
   I was lucky enough to meet Stephen Stuart-Smith of Enitharmon Books, who had a stall presenting their own selection of prints. Having lost their Arts Council last year, the good news is that this important poetry imprint is apparently now doing better than ever.
