Panter Versus Beyer by Gary Panter and Mark Beyer (322x465mm)
I guess you could call this a portfolio? It’s got four folded sheets of paper in a slightly larger cover/folder.
Each sheet of paper is printed on both sides — usually with two separate images on the “outer” side…
… and one larger image on the “inner” side of the sheet.
Half of the sheets are by Mark Beyer…
… and half are by Gary Panter.
I thought that perhaps these were screenprinted, but fondling the pages more closely, it doesn’t really feel that way. So … just conventionally offset printed? It doesn’t really look like that way, either.
printed entirely in col. silkscreen in 100 numb. copies
But it’s a limited edition of 100 copies?
The thing is, I have no recollection of how I came to buy this er portfolio.
And even more confusing:
I seem to have a whole bunch of these images on the wall in my office — but they are not from this portfolio, obviously. I mean, they can’t be on the wall and the same time be here in this portfolio. But they also seem to be printed on a different kind of paper, and they have not been folded.
But they are in exactly the same size and configuration as the portfolio, so… CBO Editions published them as both a limited edition portfolio, and also (unfolded) as posters? And I bought them both?
I’m all confused.
Anyway, looks awesome.
