RCrumb.com and Crumb Etchings announce the release of R. Crumb's 2020 self-portrait
In June of 2020, Crumb finished his fantastic self-portrait illustration and sent the artwork to Alex Wood soon after. Alex converted the artwork onto film with which he created a zinc plate to print the edition. The white Hahnemuhle paper is 12.5" x 16." The embossed area is 8.5" x 11." The image size is 10" x 7.5."
There are 60 prints in this edition, with 7 Artist Proofs (which are Crumb's and not for sale) and 3 Printer Proofs. In September the edition was mailed to France to be signed by Crumb. After signing the edition, he sent them back and they were received in early October. We're releasing these in mid-November to facilitate framing the print for Christmas if they're to be given as a present. The release date is November 16th but we are now taking orders.
Each print is screen printed with the R. Crumb Etchings printing chop in the lower left corner. Each print is numbered, signed and dated by R. Crumb in pencil. And each print comes with our guarantee for your complete satisfaction.
