B.B.King by R.Crumb

Wildwood Serigraphs is pleased to release R.Crumb's new etching edition of BB King. The illustration was done in 2001. There are 35 prints in the edition, with 6 artist proofs and 2 printer proofs. The 14" x 17" paper is acid-free Hahnemuhle. The embossed area is 9-3/4" x 12-1/2". The image size is 7-1/2" x 9-1/2". The edition was intended to be larger, but the detail (a lot of cross-hatching) proved to be very difficult to keep crisp, so only 35 prints were deemed worthy to be signed. Since BB King is being paid a royalty for the use of his name and likeness, the cost of each print will be $525, slightly higher than our usual price. Release date: Tuesday, April 12th.
