- Full Description
In his work with Tim Underwood, Jones initially painted three variants of the color print, and then decided on a final color scheme. This is the final which he submitted to Underwood along with his note "Tim, Here's the final painting -Jeff". This set consists of that hand-colored print, the hand-written note, Underwood’s sheet describing the contents of the deluxe edition this was intended for, and a limitation page (un-numbered) with an extra illustration.
More about the print itself:
Intended for the super-deluxe 52-copy, 1995 Age of Innocence, Jones carefully hand-colored the prints that were reproduced from his original pen drawing. Only 26 copies were bound up into books.
Also included is the special page in which publisher Tim Underwood describes all the special attributes of the deluxe edition and the hand-colored plate. Underwood's intention was to take these last 26 copies and put some sort of full leather or alternate deluxe special binding on them, but the project never came to fruition. Thus we are offering here the set of 4 items that would have gone with each book.
The 26 copies of the super deluxe that WERE produced are, as you would expect, extremely rare. We obtained just two copies of the book from Underwood's archives, and have already sold one ($600). We also have copies of the deluxe edition that doesn't include the color print ($250), and a signed softcover ($150), all subject to prior sale.
Each print was just a bit different, painted in watercolor by Jeff with his pencilled initial "J“ and numbered from 52.
