Jumpin’ Josiah NFTs

$5.00

The Union Square Lithography Consortium is a collection of about a few dozen NFTs— unique digital collectibles created from original Victorian-era printing stones. Each “Josiah” represents an outfit of cranial accoutrement that our founder, Josiah Lamp, actually owned, wore, and chose to be commemorated on expensive lithographic plates. Although the very purpose of lithography was to easily and efficiently reproduce images, Josiah had each stone destroyed after only one use — perhaps completely wasting the time, labor, and resources of the lithographers and artisans involved, but also increasing the rarity and value of each final print.

What are Non-Fungible Tokens?

Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) are tokens that cannot be funged. Many popular NFT collections are text files that point to some guy’s server somewhere; sometimes these servers have pictures on them, sometimes they don’t. This is kinda silly, however; our Jumpin’ Josiah NFTs are the ACTUAL PICTURES that you can download and have, thus cutting out the unnecessary step of having to waste a metric ton of carbon emissions to prove it.

You might ask: “How are these still Non-Fungible Tokens, then?” — This is a very good question. Try to funge them; see what happens.

What is the "Jumpin' Josiah" Tech Stack?

In 1892, our founder, Josiah Lamp, commissioned a set of lithography plates to commemorate his favorite outfits of that Summer. Only the finest limestone from the heart of Italy was used and nothing but the purest Bavarian oils were permitted to grace its surface. Once the plate for each article of clothing was etched, they were overlayed to show Josiah all the possible accessories that he could wear together, and then each was promptly destroyed. Therefore, each final lithograph is unique. (The original lithographers themselves never even produced another work for any other client, died shortly under varying and mysterious circumstances, and the printing shop itself was bought by the Union Square Lamp Company and concerted into a decorative Koi pond.)

What is the Value of a "Jumpin' Josiah" NFT?

The value of of every Jumpin’ Josiah is determined purely by what The Market is willing to pay. It is rumored that branches of the House of Habsburg have been impoverished by their pursuit, while paupers on the other side of the world have lined their hovels with Jumpin’ Josiahs for insulation.

What Can I Do with my "Jumpin' Josiah"?

Anything you want! You can print it out and mail it to a friend, frame it on your mantle, or just sit and stare at it for hours on your tiny little phone.

Typically, Jumpin’ Josiahs are best enjoyed with an Original Smoking Lamp while wearing a really cool hat and t-shirt.
