THE ALAN CLASS PRIVATE COLLECTION

PRINTING PLATE/COMIC SETS

Each of these unique items from the personal archive of Alan Class comprises the lead printing plates used in the original comics’ colour printing, a copy of the comic printed with these plates and a signed certificate of authenticity signed by Alan Class himself. These are packaged in a special protective presentation case. Some sets (as noted) may have additional historical artefacts such as colour proofs, interior page plates, printers’ photostats etc. Please be aware that these weigh a lot and postage will be expensive. Also note that due to the onerous paperwork required for customs declarations following Brexit, we can no longer post these Plate Sets outside the UK.
