Artist proof of "The Blue Aspic"

Gorey, Edward (illus.)

(Stuttgart): Edition Domberger, 1975. Single sheet, measuring 11 3/4 by 9 7/16 inches, showing a party scene from Edward Gorey's book The Blue Aspic. Signed by the author with a note in pencil stating that this is an "Artist proof for Domberger." The print is one in a series of seven serigraphs printed in 1975 by Domberger for Diogenes Verlag, Gorey's European publisher. The serigraphs were issued in an edition of 125, though it is unclear how many proof prints were made. Diogenes also issued a series of six etchings by Gorey that same year. Domberger was, and still is, a fine art printer, and their skillful use of silkscreen printing techniques reproduces all the texture and intricate detail of the original in this iconic image. Embossed seal in lower left corner. Fine. Item #31964
