“The Blessing” featuring Lakshmi, Hindu goddess of abundance (painting by JG Bertrand, from the Venus and Her Lover canon, to be included in The Pillow Book, forthcoming)

For a limited time only, Venus and Her Lover is gifting to the world at least 1,024 copies of the e-book and audiobook of the memoir: Venus and Her Lover: Transforming Myth, Sexuality, and Ourselves, for you or as a gift for your loved ones. This gift has no strings attached, and requires no further purchases. It requires no account to be made at the website. However, please do not distribute the files of the e-book or audiobook directly: these files are available on the website and should only be downloaded from there.

For a limited time only, Venus and Her Lover is offering the following discount sale to everyone to make museum-quality reproductions widely accessible and to promote their diffusion:

  • single prints discounted by over 35% (sale prices of $81 per small, 8″×10″ print, and $162 per large, 16″×20″ print): these and all prices do not include postage; we are also offering the following bundled pricing scale for orders placed together and mailed to the same address:

Buy a two-pack or a three-pack for yourself, or with friends who live nearby: it’s better for the environment and it lowers fulfillment and shipping costs that we pass on to you, so that it’s a better value for everyone! And the first person to explain the meanings of the special numbers chosen for these three sets of sales prices (by emailing us) gets a free small print!

These sales are available for a limited time only for no more than the first 1,600 prints sold (in whatever bundles and of whatever sizes). For each of the 64+ paintings, the prints are available in a limited run of 500 small and 150 large: for this sale, 216 small and 72 large prints are available for each painting. After that, all prints for those paintings will return to the regular pricing of around $125 per small and $250 per large.

Whether bundles of more than three prints will qualify for further discounted bundled pricing is to be determined, and not yet available through the shopping cart. For those interested, please inquire.

As a gift to our patrons, who buy any Original paintings (each priced at over $1,000, but still well-below true value and instead at fire-sale rates):

  • the patronprintsatcost coupon, for 35% pricing (at-cost) on any set of the reproductions,
  • as an incentive for a mega-patron to come much sooner than later, anyone who buys more than one Original painting gets an extra 1% off the total for each extra painting (so someone who were to buy all fourteen Original paintings remaining would get an extra 13% off the bundle!): but at the moment, our website cannot automate this (there is no coupon), so please contact us to arrange this discount before or after your purchase

In general, if the sales, your coupons, or the shipping settings do not work as described here, please contact us for help and we will resolve matters. We are not html professionals.

Note that in the case of the Original paintings, as described on that webpage.

All prices including packaging and handling. But prices do NOT include shipping. And for these Original paintings, our website does not yet have proper integration with shipping companies or couriers to provide sufficient options and accurate prices. Prices also do NOT include insurance which is recommended. Finally, prices do NOT include customs where applicable, as the paintings mail from rural Ecuador. All of these additional prices (shipping, optional insurance, and possible customs) are to be paid by the patron before the mailing of the art. If after purchasing, you will have one week to determine whether these costs (or logistics) are prohibitive, and if you decide to cancel the purchase before then, you will be promptly and fully refunded.
