Unlike most of the limited edition prints offered in the Star Wars Celebration IV Art Show, this print was available in three sizes. Only seven prints were made in this size and even fewer had gold leaf. You can see Terese Nielsen put the gold leaf on one of those seven prints in this video: Gold Leaf Demo. I like to think it is my print.

My parents had the print professional framed for my birthday in 2007. As to how I got #1, I believe I emailed the artist in the hour after the print was announced on StarWars.com. Most of that time was figuring out her email address.
