Like the Artist Edition series, while appearing to be in black & white, each page has been scanned in COLOUR to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original artfor example, you are able to clearly see paste-overs, blue pencils in the art, editorial notes, art corrections.
Each page is printed the same size as drawn, and the paper selected is as close as possible to the original art board.
