The 2013 Limited Edition Prints, First Edition
The limited, first edition prints are fully restored and enhanced from the original print negatives that were produced from the 1978 original art, and created for the Sothebys' auction in 1993. The negatives were scanned in high-resolution then meticulously restored and digitally enhanced in 2013, to provide the best quality image, even better than the original images. Jack would really be proud of this work, done by digital reconstructionist, Tom Kraft.
The final fully restored, high-resolution images are printed at full, 20"x24" size as Giclée prints on Epson Hot Press Natural, Smooth Fine Art Heavy Weight (16mm) paper. This paper is archival, acid-free, 100% cotton fiber paper with no optical brighteners.
“I have seen samples of this new printing and it is the best I have seen in 35 years!”
Barry Ira Geller
Prints are numbered 11-200 with the first 10 in reserve. Each print is number, signed by Barry Ira Geller and stamped with the official Jack Kirby Museum logo. There will be a total of 14-20x24 prints with the Planetary Control Room as 2 individual prints. 20x24 prints are sold individual or in same numbered sets. Sets will include 7 prints each. Set #1 is available now (see below). A future release of the Planetary Control Room will combine the 2 individual prints, as Jack Kirby originally envisioned it a single drawing, into a full 24x40 print.
What is so cool: I will be signing each print with one of Jack's very own draughting pencils found on his drawing table & given to me by Roz Kirby.
Set #1 of 7 prints are available now. This set includes:
- JetTube transporter
- Science Fiction Land
- Terminal of the Gods
