Is it just me or does it seem weird to call an AK-47 a "classic" or "historical" firearm? I feel like those words should still just refer to guns like the single-shot pistol John Wilkes Booth used to assassinate Abraham Lincoln. Or muskets. And I was going to say the rifle poor Travis had to cock & pull to put rabid Old Yeller to rest, but then I looked up when Old Yeller came out and when Kalashnikov developed the AK, and it turns out the latter preceded the former by at least a decade, so unless Travis was using an antique rifle passed down to him by his grampy, the AK actually garners the title of Elder. Boy does time fly in the world of popular weaponry. And in a nod to both--time flying and popular weaponry--Justin Janes has created Calibur Prints, artful diagrams designating the AK, along with the AR-15, M1911, and M1 Garand our most notorious "historical firearms".

The prints depict stylistic images of each of the 4 weapons' mechanical parts on a 19" x 27" leaf of 80lb. recycled gloss book paper with aqueous coating. They also individually label each part, as well as include a blurb at the bottom of the prints detailing the respective gun's original designer, production period, and other points of note.

Calibur prints seek Kickstarter funding through August 23, 2013.

December 2013 Update: Calibur prints exceeded their crowdfunding goal and is now available for direct purchase through the company's website--follow the link below.
