    1. A first version of the book was self-published in a digitally printed limited edition in late 2020. This post originally showed this version as well as the accompanying posters.

      In June 2021, Shameless/Limitless—Selected Posters & Texts 2008–2020 was officially published with Slanted, now printed in 4-color offset. The post has been updated with images showing the new edition, which were kindly submitted by fertig design. See more images on the Slanted website.
