Each summer I sell prints from my personal print collection, or prints acquired in trades. All of these prints are from editions that are now sold out. They're in mint condition and have been stored in a flat file where they have never been exposed to light. I highly recommend using UV protected glass if you're going to buy and frame any of these prints.

Arcade #2 Serigraph Print
This 120 print edition was printed and signed in 2005. It took a while to sell out but it remains a high point in our collection of editions. There were 23 colors and 21 screens used to create this edition. The registration and spit-fountains (a total of five blends were used in the edition!) work perfectly. I was also able to hold the best detail with 230 mesh/dpi dither output of the films I used–the perfect combination. I think, as a printer, this is one of the best editions I've printed.

I think it originally sold for $90. It sold out more than 10 years ago.

Harmonica Blues Serigraph Print
This is print number 178 from an edition of 200. Printed in 2000, it was very difficult to print with all the blends in the sky. I don't know if I would attempt this kind of print at this point in my life–only when I was young and foolish. 26 colors were used in this edition. The white acid-free paper is 26" x 26.5". The image size is 21" x 21". The cert is signed by Jesse and Alex. A small paragraph for the cert was written by Crumb...begrudgingly. Mint condition, stored flat–never has seen the light of day.

The Adventures of R. Crumb Himself Serigraph Print
This is the second edition I printed and published with Crumb, way back in '95. This is actually the most difficult print for me to find, as I haven't any extras of this edition. There were no certs made for this edition. We wouldn't do that until the next year when we published Robert Johnson. I think this is about a 26 color edition. The paper is 22" x 30". The image size is 17" x 25". In mint condition, never been framed or matted. This is print number 188/190.
Despair Serigraph Print

The paper is 22" x 30". The image is 15" x 21". This is print number 89/100. The cert was well-written by Crumb. Numbered, dated and signed by Crumb as well.

Beloved Music Makers of Days Gone By Portfolio
This is a portfolio of three different individually numbered and signed prints. There are 200 portfolios in the edition, released in 1999. This portfolio is numbered #179/200. Each portfolio is bound by a portfolio jacket and also enclosed is a certificate of authenticity. The certificate is signed by Alex Wood and Jesse Crumb. The portfolio cover is 13" x 16". The three prints inside (Jack Teagarden-jazz; Memphis Minnie & Kansas City Joe-blues; The North Carolina Ramblers-country) are each signed, dated and numbered by Crumb. So you get three signed Crumb prints for the price of one! The portfolio and its prints are in mint condition.
Dale Steinberger Serigraph Print
There are 200 prints in this edition, and this is print number 172/200. The edition was released in 2004. The cream Rives BFK paper is 22" x 30". The image size is 14" x 19".

Footsy Serigraph Print
The very first edition I printed and published with Crumb in 1994. I used almost 30 colors and 4 blends to convince Crumb we could create a really fantastic edition. There are 200 prints in the edition, and this is print number 196/200. There was no certificate created with this edition. And it was also before Crumb dated his serigraphs by his signature, so it has only the print number and his signature. He also signed this in hard pencil in France, far away from me so I couldn't suggest he use a softer, darker pencil. So his signature is too faint for my taste, but it's there if you look closely. A rare and difficult print to find for me. Whatever its limitations may be, I was always very happy with the way this edition turned out. The cream paper is 22: x 30". The image size is 18" x 25". Mint condition.
BB King Etching
Released in 2011 as a 35 print etching edition, it also had 6 artist proofs and 2 printer proofs. I'm selling one of my printer proofs, number 1/ 2. The paper is 14" x 17". The image is almost 8" x 10". This is one of the largest etchings we've done. Numbered, signed and dated by Crumb. Great illustration. Crumb's not even interested in BB King, but he did it for us (Jesse and me). I'm still thankful to him for this great illustration.
Le Monde Selon Crumb Etching

On the Crest of a Wave
Released in 2014, this was taken from a Fantagraphics The Complete Crumb Volume 6. Crumb touched it up a bit and added a person of color to encompass more of the social revolution taking place at the time-all smashed against the wall of reality. Edition of 50 with 3 printer proofs and 6 artist proofs. I'm selling my printer proof 1/3. It has a custom sig of R. "Ol' Starchy" Crumb. The paper measures 14" x 13". The image is 9" x 7".
