A kind member whom I very much respect sent me photos, it is an intriguing flaw. I wonder if the ap’s of other prints have a similar line hidden in the same place, and there is a flaw with the printing mechanism

Every Hanuka AP has the following line from Ghostbusters subtly screenprinted in a translucent layer:

“Then, during the Third Reconciliation of the Last of the Meketrex Supplicants, they chose a new form for him, that of a giant Sloar! Many Shubs and Zulls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of a Sloar that day, I can tell you!”
...

That's what she said

I hear a world of paper shuffling and magnifying glasses a flame. How far back does this flaw go? If it is a printing issue it wouldn’t be specific to Hanuka’s pieces

Just out of curiosity:

If it is only on the ap’s and not the regular edition, are the ap’s ap’s or a thinly veiled second edition that was done much later? What is the printing code ethics on this issue?

That's a very good question.

I scored huge brownie points presenting this print to my wife for her birthday :banana:
Does it have that line like all the other ones?
Nope, no print flaws to speak of, and no torn corners either, which is a real bonus :D

Thought I'd share this as I haven't seen many frame-ups of Tomer's stuff. Got this done a few months ago and it was tricky to get the balance right for such a crazy yet elegant print.

Thanks man, had to wrestle with the idea of such a wide mount and comparatively thin frame but I think it does the job - gives it some much needed room to breathe. I also think the dark trim is essential to box it all off, sort of like a comic book frame but more elegant. My framer did an excellent job to be fair.

Looks like Tomer has done a reg/var Annihilation print and is selling APs. I like it, nice and trippy/lurid - http://thanuka.com/prints/annihilation-aps-var

Was this a private commission or something?
