This is the Richard Corben Coffret, a scarce two-volume slipcased set of hardcover art books filled with Richard Corben artwork. This is the catalog for the Richard Corben museum exhibition held in conjunction with the Angouleme BD Festival in January 2019.
The first 160-page volume has 185 reproductions of Richard Corben original art, plus a few pages of text on the artist.
The second 160-page volume has almost no text, just page after page of Richard Corben artwork, in chronological order.
All the artwork is newly scanned in high resolution with color calibration. The artwork is all reproduced in color.
Both volumes are housed in an illustrated slipcase.
1500 copies of the regular catalog (the first volume) were made: 1000 were sold individually and 500 were combined with the second volume and slipcase to create the Coffret Edition.
The Coffret Edition was limited to only 450 copies for sale and 50 “Hors Commerce” (not for sale) copies for contributors.
The Coffret Edition sold out the first day of the festival. (The regular edition of the catalogue also sold out during the festival.)
The books are 10” x 13.75”
The text is in French. The captions in the original art are in English.
Condition is Brand New still in the original shrinkwrap. The corners are sharp and the books have never been opened. (The interior images are from another copy.)
We will ship this item well padded in a sturdy new cardboard box.
