Yeah, exactly. Not sure the point made was worth the time to copy and quote.

There was no point made.

Agreed for sure.

His prints in person do not disappoint. You all know this already. Some of the finest printing of anyone.
+1: seemed like a really conceited approach.

I'd also have to agree with your other statement as well- some of the best looking prints i own- they are so vibrant comparatively speaking. Maybe not Sperry vibrant, but right up there. DFace cares about quality- that's for sure.

Wouldn't one person not get the driver (foreground) if you did that? You only get one of those and the option to swap the backdrop.

Love the image. Gonna be outstanding quality. Terribly awful layout/package. although i do commend the creativity behind it.

Really sad about this one- I was CRAVING this image as a print when i saw the piece for Scars and Stripes.

I'm surprised they didn't offer it 2 ways like:

Regular ol' single layer screen-print edition of 50/per backdrop.
$450

Layered Variant edition of 5 silk-screen on stack-able crystal clear acrylic panels.
$1750

Split the run in half, 75 London and 75 Cali (dare I say lower it to 50-50, edition of 100). Ditch the gimmick and print the entire image as one piece. Cut the price down to $400-500 MAX. And make the image big, like 40"x26". And NO drymounting MASSIVE WHITE BORDERS. Then you've got a winner.
