I don't know what you're talking about.
The quality control was apparently non-existent. Below is one of the more egregious examples, but there were lots of printing issues reported on fb, as well as consistent damage throughout portions of specific editions. That, and Domhnall Gleeson's name is misspelled on Ex Machina.
They should compile them in a cut out book called "Mondogreens".

detailed shots always make LDs look better; and they always do look better in person too.

I'm most interested in the jungle version of AN; maybe the typewriter Shining if I could find it cheap sometime down the road.

One nitpick on the typewriter - he's got the British pound symbol above the #4 key instead of the US dollar symbol . . .

Those pics look pretty slick though. Makes me want that river var even more.
Typo on Conan too.

That's how it is in the movie. It's an Adler Eagle German typewriter. (They go in-depth on its use in Room 237, for better or worse.)

^ah. interesting. thanks for correcting me on that. The accuracy of the typewriter makes the poster a little better for me actually - just thought it was any old typewriter.

and the shape above the keys now makes more sense with the axe there too.

My appreciation for that print just went up after seeing that reference photo.

No problem. You can see the little typewriter slats on the tip of the axe, too.
