Heroes of the Blues Giclee

The Official Crumb Site is pleased to announce the release of the Heroes Of The Blues limited giclee edition. This giclee print has been digitally remastered from the artwork of the serigraph edition published in 2010, which is now sold out. 16 colors were used in that serigraph, the unusually large number of screens being necessary to mix and simulate the colors specified by Crumb. Still, some compromises had to be made due to the nature of the screening process. But with this new giclee edition, each color was matched without any limitations, resulting in a print truer to Crumb's original intentions. 

The image size in both editions is the same: 16.5 inches wide by 25 inches tall. The Somerset Velvet 255 archival paper is 22 inches by 29 inches. This paper is white, as opposed to the cream of the serigraph edition, and a cream border is printed on each card. 

The Heroes Of The Blues giclee edition will be released Tuesday, June 26th. The unsigned edition is limited to 300 prints, and its color and detail are outstanding. Your complete satisfaction is guaranteed or your money back. If you missed the opportunity to buy a print from the serigraph edition, here is your chance to purchase and enjoy some of Crumb's best portraits, celebrating America's musical heritage.
