Recently, the Bethesda Merchandise Store began taking orders for three limited edition Elder Scrolls Online lithographs. As of today, the high quality artwork is still available for sale here, though it should be noted that the specially discounted “3 pack” is sold out.
Elder Scrolls Online Art
The latest Elder Scrolls Online art is a series of three amazing lithographs featuring the leaders of the ESO factions:
- Queen Ayrenn Arana of the Aldmeri Dominion
- High King Emeric of the Daggerfall Covenant
- Jorunn the Skald-King of the Ebonheart Pact
Each lithograph is limited to 300 pieces and is individually numbered. Suitable for framing and collecting, The Elder Scrolls Online art is printed on 100lb paper and measures 18 inches X 24 inches. The cost for each piece is $40.00.
Packaging and Shipping
Some of you may remember the difficulties the Bethesda Merchandise Store had last year with shipping lithographs. Like comic books of old, the artwork used to be shipped flat, but unfortunately some earlier prints were damaged in transit. This caused an understandable kerfuffle with collectors, and Bethesda changed their packaging and shipping procedures as a result.
Now, instead of shipping flat, lithographs will be dutifully rolled and shipped in a heavy-duty, 4 inch mailing tube. Careful packing takes time, and Bethesda cautions that it may take up to a week or more to process orders for The Elder Scrolls Online art.
Speculation or Enjoyment?
Like previous lithographs sold at the Bethesda Merchandise Store, this latest Elder Scrolls Online art is only being produced in limited quantities. With a run of only 300 pieces, it wouldn’t surprise me if the artwork sells out fast.
Earlier Elder Scrolls prints (now out of stock) are being sold on eBay at inflated prices. Does this mean you should speculate and buy the lithographs now with the hope of selling later at a profit? It’s an individual choice, though I would only purchase Elder Scrolls Online art for personal enjoyment. Speculation is a risky business. Either way — if you want to buy as an investment, hoping the art will be worth more in the future, or if you simply want to decorate your walls Elder Scrolls style you may want to act fast. The Elder Scrolls Online art won’t be on sale forever.
