I wonder why there's such a huge disparity in the asking pricing between his copies of HAM ON RYE and WAR ALL THE TIME? Both paintings are strong. Is HAM a more important title than WAR to the tune of an extra $900?!
I also think it's curious that he included a pic of the colophon with his listing for WAR, but not HAM. Nice call, Bill.
For what it's worth, my copy of DANGLING IN THE TORONOFORTIA is in the 1/100 series, but the spine cloth is the burgundy that was used for the 1/350 series. Sometimes, they just ran out of material towards the end of the binding process. I've heard of this happening with other titles as well.
Not long ago, Skyline Books was selling a copy of HAM ON RYE in the 1/350 series with a painting laid into it. I'm not inferring that this is the case, but if you could get your hands on a loose painting, you could probably bind it in with some PVC glue fairly easily.
