Mel Ramos’s latest edition puts a classic painting by the Pop art legend at your fingertips: Captain Midnight Puzzle is an archival acrylic print of Ramos’s 1962 composition Captain Midnight on gessoed panel, precisely laser cut into an approximately 800-piece puzzle. In a nod to the artist’s fondness for cigars, the edition comes housed in a custom cigar-style box printed with an image of the painting and etched with Ramos’s signature; each puzzle in the edition of 30 was also signed by the artist.
