Re: Oversoul 98 Grey

There exists a blotter edition. Official. Some are signed, not numbered. While that comment was posted two years prior to tomorrow's release, I'm 99% sure the information is inaccurate. The edition that was put out around the year 2000 was not an authorized edition. I've hosted signings of books, p...

Re: Chuck Sperry News

Forgot about those. Always wondered why those were called "blotter" when none of them have perforations or seem to be blotter in any sense of the word that I can surmise.

Re: Chuck Sperry News

I can confirm that The Beatles / Orange Sunshine and Dave Hunter blotters were all printed offset with vegetable inks. I'm not producing this current print so not certain of that process, but I have the Gary Houston Acid Test 50th blotter by the same producer and it was offset with vegetable inks. I...

Re: Joan Jett 15 Sperry

+1 Silver Foil!

Not as fond of this as I am of The Who Silver Foil, but I'm also a much bigger Who fan than Joan Jett fan.

(Interesting that she opened for The Who on this past tour, though!)
