- Full Description
When Jeffrey Jones and Tim Underwood were considering how to make the Super Deluxe edition of Age of Innocence special, they came upon the idea of Jeff hand-coloring a drawing he had done, reproduced in b&w on parchment paper. Here are the three proposal hand-colored samples, each one subtly different and unlike the final versions. These are not numbered but each is signed with an initial. Comes with a hand-written note "Tim, This is the Idea. Give me a call. -Jeff," along with the un-numbered limitation page wih an illustration, and the signature page, un-numbered, which is signed only by Roger Dean but not by Jeff.
More about the print:
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 errata 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.
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.
