- Full Description
Phil Normand caught our eye when he did the new, first-ever coloring of the cover image by Frazetta for Tarzan and the Castaways, Canaveral Press, 1964. Phil is a #1 ERB fan, and has been reconstructing the original first edition jackets, like this one, as well as creating new variant jackets for classic ERB books. This was one of his earliest efforts and we are pleased to make it available. The artwork has been meticulously restored and the paper is 80# cover stock in a color that closely matches the original. This is fine art letterpress printing using wood-mounted magnesium plates. Comes with full production details on a certificate of authentication, signed and dated by Phil Normand and a bookmark, also letter press printed, repeating the cover artwork along with details of the original A.C. McClurg edition.
This is as fine press an item as it gets. The dust-jacket is carefully printed in three colors, matching the original 1914 edition. Every line of the original Fred J. Arting art has been traced by Phil to make the cleanest, most accurate reproduction of this jacket ever made. The source copies were from the ERB Memorial Collection in Louisville, and from the Danton Burroughs collection at ERB, Inc. Restoration was by Phil Normand, Normand Design and Recoverings. This is probably the closest you’ll ever get to owning an original.
Phil's fine coloring for the above-mentioned Frazetta piece is reproduced in the Edgar Rice Burroughs 100 Year Chronology. We also, by permission, used it on the cover of our Late Summer 2018 catalog.
