Original posters for the DEXTER TV series

Poster artist Ty Mattson created the silk-screened prints for the Dexter series (one for each season) with images in high-contrast, silhouettes for a bold graphic design. View the artists web page to see tons of photos of the silk-screen process. Cartoon artists created another series of posters based on the 'Early Cuts' animated web series (narrated by Dexter himself: Michael Hall).

Buying posters at auction: Excellent condition & other grading systems

Buying posters at auction: Excellent condition & other grading systems:

Vintage Auction Paddles
"The most important thing about bidding at an auction is to understand the condition of the object for sale."

So what is allowed on a poster in excellent condition? Three or four minor faults are permitted, including marks on the back of the poster that do not bleed-through to affect the quality of the image. There can be no more than two small tears on the edges, less than a quarter inch long, or one minor hole through the original fold lines. Small creases and wrinkles in the margin are acceptable, and very minor damp stains, mildew, or foxing (for definitions, see below). If any paper is torn off, holes in the margin, or if the image is faded, the poster will be down-graded to Very Good (C7), or less.

"Despite the high value placed on them by collectors, First Folios are not particularly rare. West notes that 232 copies exist today in institutions around the world as well as in private libraries. Although each copy was produced on a printing press, no two are exactly identical.

“Each one of the 232 copies is unique, each with its individual history” says West. “One thing that interests me is the provenance, the succession of owners. And it’s not just the individual but also their collective history that is fascinating—for example, when and how the volumes spread around the world. If you handle a book that’s 400 years old, and you think of all its owners and readers, you have a feeling you’re as close as you can get to these people.”"
