Hello, sorry if this has been discussed, but I haven't seen it explained anywhere.

I'm looking at some prints and one of them has a chlorophyll version. What exactly does that mean? It's hard to see a difference when only looking at pictures.

Do you guys think they look better? Are they preferred? Thanks in advance!

Haha, nicely done guys.

I was disappointed there wasn't an answer, but then very happy remembering when Adam Sandler used to be funny!

wondered this myself. The Spusta tree adn we says cholophyll edition which I assumed was the color but it looks the same as the reg on the jpeg. Thinking about buying it but don't see the difference from the pics.

I'm thinking it might be a kind of glossy, refractor type finish? Really just a guess though

and that's actually the print i was talking about!

the original looks so good, that I don't want to get a more "novelty" type variant if it sacrifices some of the amazing coloring.

Chlorophyll (also chlorophyl) is a green pigment found in cyanobacteria and the chloroplasts of algae and plants. Its name is derived from the Greek words χλωρος, chloros ("green") and φύλλον, phyllon ("leaf").
I figured you'd want the Greek left in there for study :lol:
Its a plant based paper (instead of tree?)- and, okay just go with me on this.. I believe the paper is clear and translucent, because there were those chlorophyll rolling papers (that sucked) a few years ago- that looked like that:) :ziggi:
Might be totally wrong of course!

Chlorophyll is definitely the green stuf found inside all plants...

Was there perhaps a green in the print?

I think there was a green print, chlorophyll print, and regular print.

It definitely doesn't look green from pictures

The only reason I clicked on this thread was for the Billy Madison reference and I was not disappointed

I would assume its a reference to the paper color.

From Marq himself: "but we still have a few Chlorophyll. This paper is wild, and changes color and brightness in the light. It's officially called GNUMB REACTION Strong Chlorophyll Yellow. It's hard to capture the paper's qualities in the photo, but this may bey favorite color for this print."

So it's just a name for the badass paper Marq has picked to get some of his new images printed on over at Monolith Press. Marq does a great job picking out rediciulous paper for his variants. I guarantee you you will not be disappointed and that there is a big difference from the reg, just can't really see through the jpegs. There was also a yellow green variant (which I got, along with reg) that is badass too, sold out though.

and numerous algae and bacteria. Its a pigment that helps with capturing different spectra for light absorption, there are several different pigments present to catch the spectrum but chlorophyll is the most well know. Yeah - its likely referring to the 'colour' as mentioned in that last post.
