From the series "Das Gesicht Hamburgs" (1964); in addition to the regular book edition, a luxury edition of 25 copies was also printed.
These copies have the sheets lying loose in a sturdy cassette. Only from this luxury edition has the artist signed each sheet individually! Unfortunately, often sheets are cut out of the ordinary edition and provided with a forged signature.
Those who are not familiar with Masereel's signature can distinguish the false from the real on the basis of two additional criteria:
1. The original signed pieces are printed on Japanese paper, i.e. paper with a particularly noble structure due to the use of rice fibre.
2. Each sheet is incorporated in a beige mat. The sheet I offer for sale here, comes from the sixth copy of the 25 luxury editions (numbered 6, see the photos).
In perfect condition, taken out of the folder as brand new. Folder and other prints not included.
