Where does this group of icons come from?

I've been trying to gather some high resolution images of icons for my parish. We hire an iconographer to do all of our large scale work on our walls & ceilings. However, we use a variety of sources for mounted & laminated icons. Either purchasing them from the wide range of iconographers, bookstores & presses out there, or we have them printed on canvas. The ones we have printed on canvas are usually icons that were painted long ago, are out of copyright and are already widely printed.

One set of icons I've seen widely produced is a set of Byzantine Style icons, presumably out of Greece. I haven't seen any copyright ever referenced, and as widely produced as they are, I assume they are older. However, I cannot find where they originate from, such as what iconographer did them, or what monastery produced them. They appear to be an entire set of icons since they are all of the same style, background etc...

Can anyone help me figure out where they are from?

I do not know the man who painted them, but they were painted specifically for the GOA. It is very likely that a given GOA parish has the full set on laminated cards and rotates them in a proskynitarion for veneration.

The originals were produced by the Pachomian Brotherhood of Mt Athos. This series features a large number of saints, and a complete festal set.

Come to think of it, I've seen the set in an encased proskynitarion. I'm  not sure where I can find it for our parish though.

Thank you! Do you know where our parish can purchase the set?
