So I just picked up one of these from Dead.net for $50 and it is s/n out of 400 by Johannsen. Is this a third printing? This post does not mention a s/n edition for the first or second run. Can any mods help out with some info?

I was assuming when I purchased one that it was a 3rd edition as well. Just my thought though....... :?

Yes it's a 3rd printing. It's a new printing using different paper and inks and is signed and numbered out of 400. It's not the first or second printing.

I believe the 1st two printings were OPs, so I modified the entry.

What does "OP" stand for?

Good question! I've definitely looked at some of the vintage concert prints and wondered about the different edition abbreviations.

Wow. I don't know if this is a backlash from the badly packaged Emek prints but my Telluride print came today in the biggest tube I have ever gotten a poster in. This thing is mondo big. Like 8 inches in diameter. HUGE. nice print. I got 89/400.

They generally follow Eric King's guide:

OP=Original Printing
RP=Reprinting
OHB=Original Handbill
RHB=Reprint Handbill
OPC=Original Postcard
RPC=Reprint Postcard

Do you recall how much you paid for shipping? It looks like all of the shipping that I've seen starts at $24.00 bucks, I'm sure after TONS of complaints and returns they got sick of having to deal with damaged prints and pissed off customers.

It took about 2 1/2 months to get a replacement print sent to me.


my replacement emek print also came in one of those CANNON's, I can't say that it did a whole lot of good. The print was still bouncing around in the drymounting tube and I still ended up having some issue's with the corners



Now DEAD.NET has these up for sale for $100.00

Common sense, is not that common

I believe OP stands for offset print meaning offset lithograph. The original is a litho not a silkscreen. This print has been highly bootlegged too.

not sure of the answer, but he is very communicative via FB: https://www.facebook.com/SteveJohannsenArt

I got one of his last copies of the original printing from him a few years ago.
