You've just got to love it--waiting years between prints in this series, and then when one finally comes out, 1 out of 7 words (and that's including "a" and "of") is misspelled. I've said it before, but it's still true: this thread is one of the best. :)

I’m going to be really thick here and ask...what is misspelled?

That would be, but the variant has "centenial." Maybe he wanted the variant to be extra-different?

You'd think when you're paying more for a variant, you'd get more letters, not fewer.

Laurent's facebook shows the variant with proper spelling, I'm guessing they accidentally used the old photos for promotion. They did say a spelling error caused the delay in this print.

Not sure why the commission lead hasn't posted here, but I have confirmed that the picture that was posted was an old picture and it is corrected on the actual variant.

While I get that people are salty that it has taken so long to roll out these prints, kudos to Ford Craftsman for actually shipping all of them on Monday

Hey guys, busy packing and shipping but wanted to check in. Yeah, I screwed up and used an early image with the release. As you can see, there's a misspelling. I caught this during proofing. This had to be fixed, new separations and trapping done, and I lost my spot in the print queue. This run consumes about two full weeks of time in the shop so it had to be rescheduled thus the delay so it couldn't go out in November. At least it's fixed!

A big batch went out yesterday, another is going out today. I've got a couple of days on the road and then the rest will go out Friday and Saturday with maybe a few stragglers going out Monday.

Has anyone received this yet? If so, did any tracking info get sent out?
