I dig the print and all, but think it's a bit pricey and over-hyped for an offset litho (assuming the listing is correct). I definitely like the 50's throwback feel and the attention to detail like the clock tower.

This is from Eric's blog on the Hill Valley print (7/19/10):
Thanks to all of those who expressed interest in the print. The support on this piece is really overwhelming to me. Of all the posters I've created so far, it definitely took the longest and I'm glad you guys appreciate it. In the future, I'll be sure to up the run a bit so more folks can throw it up on their wall.
I wonder if the last sentence means he will do a variant BTTF print. Maybe he means on all future prints that he releases he will consider increasing the run. Either way, good news...more people will be able to get his work.

My Tan BttF is double-sided. There's a faint image of the print on the back. It's not reversed, so it didn't pick it up from another copy. Anyone else's like this?

I think it's cool. :banana:

I thought you were crazy at first :), but mine has it too. It's not reversed like you said and it's upside down from the front image. It looks like white ink and the Hill Valley is a very, very faint red.

The top image is the normal photo of the back of the print and the bottom one I adjusted the contrast to pop the image more:

Thanks for verifying that I'm not crazy, KNEEL!

Just had the chance to check mine...it's double-sided too. Now that I think back...I have a recollection of seeing *something* on the back when I initially pulled the print out of the tube. It was so tightly rolled, I didn't want to mess with it to investigate at the time. Forgot all about it until I saw your posts.

o-h-h-h...wow...

Is it possible that was his intention? If so, I think it's awesome.

Checked mine tonight and officially joining the 'me too' brigade..

I wonder if it was a test run on the other side...?

That thought crossed my mind. I'm not experienced enough to know if they'd do that sort of thing. You'd think they'd do their test run then use new/fresh paper. I mean...I'm all into saving trees but to reuse the paper...not so sure about that. Anything is possible, I suppose.

Ha! I asked Eric about it. Here's his response...
About the 'ghosted' image on back, I noticed that when I was signing them and it really is odd. I'm not quite sure if ink got on the belt accidentally but it is consistent with all 150 of them. I'm happy with how the front turned out. The colors are exactly as they were approved on the proof. The eerie image on the back is quite the mystery. It's the 1st time that's happened and I'm just glad it was faint enough that it didn't affect the front. Spoooooky!
