i read it as you only get matching #'s if you buy the set...if you bought a set this time and want a single next time, no matching number for you. it only pertains to sets. at least thats the way i read it.

How much more speculating can you guys do?
It seems if everybody just read Dead Arts you would have all your answers.
Instead you ask your question here and then somebody else copy and pastes from Dead Arts.
This is fun.

i dont think the editioning thing for future releases is as big of a deal as everyone thinks it is. i would imagine they will email the people that bought today shortly before the next set drops and ask if you want to buy the next set. if you do, you will prolly get a link to pay and the number is yours. if not, those numbers will be sold as singles(or go to new buyers for the next set). as for the bonus print, the numbers that dont get renewed will go to new buyers for the next set. the sets will be the lowest possible numbers i'm sure. plus, there will be more people buying sets as the series progresses i'm sure...thats prolly why the less desired pieces are being offered 1st.

thats a long winded explanation but it aint as complicated as it looks.
But that would mean if you're not a number holder and you buy a set in the future, your bonus print number might not match the set you just bought. Sounds like it could be a thrown together set of prints with different numbers.
why? lets say i get #20/xxx this time(although i didnt buy the set this is hypothetcal). next round, i pass. someone that didnt buy this time, but wants to buy next time, can have #20. then they get it for subsequent sets as well...and if they decide to stop buying at some point the process starts over. am i wrong?
i think you're wrong... because that sounds waaaaay too complicated.
are you missing the sarcastic smiley? cause it dont get much simpler. ahhh who cares...dont know why i'm even posting. i didnt even buy the set so i dont care. i'll only buy a couple singles...just the ones i'll frame.

I think the home for the bonus will be for someone who bought a set but did not buy a set the first round.

For example

300 total purchasers of the set. Thus 300 rooks, racebannon, melvin, fantomas...

- Next set 200 of the previous buyers buy the set.
- 80 people buy the set for the first time. I guess the extra 100 (the gaps) would go to these people (thus the series could be number out of 280)
- Although if 150 people buy the set for the first time 100 (mixed numbers) would go to them and an additional 50 would have to be printed.
- Thus the original 200 would have their same number say 20/XXX although it may now be 20/VVV (xxx being 300 for first series and vvv being 350 for second series)

- That way everyone keeps their same number as it is locked for the rest of the release and new purchasers would get leftovers from the gaps in the printing.

That probably did not make sense but I did my best.

Additionally, The Scavenger (DA002), Drifting Monument (DA003) and Goatmeal (DA004) are available for purchase individually below and also include a Dead Arts Publishing Certificate of Authenticity.
So does this mean there are two different COAs depending on if you purchased a single print vs. the suite? It would seems strange to get a "Suite 1" COA with a single print.
I am not sure... But I suspect the 3 prints included in the series ~may~ (and I say this with NO inside knowledge) have their own COA's and the 4th may be to acknowledge that you purchased the full series and The Rook may be absent of a COA. I say this because I think ANY print "sold" out of the state of California legally requires a COA and The Rook is basically a bonus 'gift' from the publisher / Dead Arts with the 'purchase' of the full set.

My 2 cent speculation. :lol:

I noticed the word "and" is visible on the letterpress teaser pic so I'm assuming the band names are still hidden within the image. I think I can make out "Gospel" but it's pretty distorted. I've never really been able to understand what's going on in that poster.
the whole image is what says racebannon. the big white splotch in the center is the 'o', with the filagrees to its left being the double 'n' then the legible 'and' then gospel. this GP thread should still have the overlay where somebody traced it on a wacom -

http://www.gigposters.com/forums/poster ... ail-2.html

read the GP thread and you'll see the genesis of the image and why the regular ed. doesn't have the text at the bottom, mainly because the image IS the text. it's super abstract and harks back to his graff days, and i think is definitely one of his most underrated prints.

my only guess is 800/600 would be their number.
