Original Pages Used To Create the FMOF #6 50th Anniversary Reissue

only 1 copy available

This is the actual original 1960 copy of FMOF #6 used to create the 2008 50th anniversary #6 reissue edition.  The issue is worn but complete.  Condition fair.  Staples have been removed (staple not included).  Covers are detached.  A few interior pages are detached from their spreads.

History:  These original 1960 pages were scanned, bleed area was added by hand, each photo was descreened and then painstakingly restored by hand.  The type was reset using custom made fonts that exactly copied the original fonts, text and leading.  The covers were scanned, desreened and restored by hand.   The entire restoration process and creation of new printing press plates took approximately 2 and a half months.  A unique piece of FMOF publishing history.  The only one in existence.

Copies of the FMOF #6 reissue sell on average at $50.00 and up.  Original copies of FMOF #6 even in poor condition sell for upwards of $100.00.  This particular copy is a unique piece of FMOF publishing history for the true-grue FMOF collector.

NOTE:  This sale is for the original 1960 copy of FMOF #6 as described above only.  Absolutely no rights to the issue content, photos, trademark or intellectual property rights of either the original issue or the Ferry recreation are included or implied. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity stating that this is the actual copy of FMOF #6 used by Ray Ferry to create the 2008 50th anniversary reissue of FMOF #6.
