Looks like edge damage top right corner as well...

And the whole "use tissue paper and fold it around the whole print" way of packing is :hanging: Hope mine arrives mint. :?

The slight edge damage in that picture is exactly how mine arrived too. Huge tube but I don't get the tissue paper folded around it strategy--doesn't prevent the print from moving around and getting damaged.

Luckily mine has just a tough of edge wear, not enough to complain or anything. But the packing job is frustrating.

Even the one posted on Ebay as "mint, pristine" clearly has the slight edge damage on the upper right from the picture.

Unfortunately looks like most will have it.

As advised, the 3 prints I have received have been perfect.. contrary to what shadows you may or may not see on the pictures.. Why worry until you know otherwise.. Lifes too short my friend :oops: :oops:

How can proper packaging still be a mystery to so many artists/galleries?

Mainly seems to be with the Europeans. My Fin Dac and K Guy prints both came in packaged the same, tissue paper with the ends tucked in. Do they not know what kraft paper is? :wink:

And they have shitty tubes over there.

To add my experience, my print has come through in perfect condition despite the tissue paper. Nice big tube too :)

I was planning on buying this when I saw it last year. Then I bought Doe's BIV instead. You can only have sooo many rainbows in your house at one time :D
