**NOTE** The preorder offer is now closed, although I do plan to make a small number of extra copies to sell at conventions and stuff. If you're interested in a copy, send an email to email@example.com to let me know.
This deluxe version of Simon Hanselmann's BAD GATEWAY is produced by Chance Press in collaboration with the artist, "Simon Hanselmann."
There are two versions available, both of which include a copy of BAD GATEWAY, published by Fantagraphics.
Version "A" (top three photos) is limited to 100 copies or less and includes a museum-quality pigment ink print on Canson Etching cotton rag paper. Each print is numbered and signed by the artist and adhered into each copy with archival photo corners. (The print in the photo is for illustration purposes only -- the final artwork may be different.)
Version "B" (bottom two photos) is limited to 15 copies or less and includes the book and print from the "A" edition, plus:
-- A handmade hybrid slipcase/clamshell box with magnetic closure
-- Hand-lettered title on the cover
-- An additional print on Hahnemuhle paper
-- An exclusive 12-page zine that won't be available anywhere else. Yes, Simon is doing an entire zine that will only ever have 15 copies.
(Note that the case pictured here is a mockup, and the final product will have the title hand-lettered in black paint on the gold section.)
IMPORTANT: This is a preorder, and books will ship in September. However, I will only produce as many copies as are claimed through this preorder offer, plus a small overrun.
Finally, big thanks to Fantagraphics for being cool with this project.
