There were two batches of this, an initial batch of 750 copies some embossed, some not - see 1st and 2nd pressings below. Then a second batch of 1200 from a different printer with soft laminate which was not suitable for embossing as it left white markings.
So, the three versions are as follows:
1st version: 95 copies matt laminate not embossed - distributed at the Utrecht exhibition (see auction info below)
2nd version: 655 copies, same printer and same batch as the first pressing with matt laminate but these were embossed "Peter Hook Signature Collection" in the top right corner
3rd version: 1200 copies soft touch laminate not embossed from a second printer.
Within each pressing some were signed some were not. Hooky also added "2019" when he signed later copies after the new year.
