Limited Edition Octopus Print

Jun 12, 2013

Is it octopi or octopuses?

According to, octopuses is the way to go.
But octopi clearly has a better mouthfeel.

Malacologists and teuthologists consider it a “toss-up.”

However you prefer to pluralize your favorite cephalopods, I recently snapped a shot of four of ‘em hanging out to dry on a clothesline in Crete:

The photo was originally published alongside my story about Crete in Lucky Peach 7, The Travel Issue. After a reader wrote in asking to purchase a print of the photo, we decided to make a limited edition of seven signed octo-prints. Each print is 26” x 17” and costs $1,000. The two following charities will each receive a portion of the proceeds:
Crete For Life
The Vancouver Aquarium’s Oceanwise Conservation Program

Two of the prints have already been sold. If you are interested in acquiring one of the remaining five, please contact me here.

Here’s a bigger version of the image:
