The seller claims this is a reproduction of a Trader Vic's menu cover but methinks it's from Zombie Village, Oakland. It's in the book but I'm at work now. Does anyone know?

You are right. Zombie Village. It's in The Book opposite the table of contents

I think it's a scan and print out of the BOT. And with an $18.00 starting price and $5.00 shipping that's a $23.00 order. I think they just printed it out.

Whatever sells, huh...people will even steal copyrighted artwork, as long as they think they get away with it and can make a buck...sad.

I filed a report with ebay on this guy after seeing that he's selling reproductions of Vargas calendar images and lots of other pirated images. We'll see what ebay does...

I bet you anything that it's a repo from the BOT. I also sell repo's on ebay, but I have them done from the original otherwise you lose a lot of contrast. You see lots of dots! So, if you see a print on ebay from me, it's from the original. Now if I get the original to that Zombie add, I will for sure reprint it! I don't want to get sued for a 10$ print!

Can you believe someone actually payed 21 bucks for that thing? Someone obviously didn't read the fine print and assumed it was original...
