    Description

    Robert Crumb Heroes of the Blues Limited Serigraph #87 of 150 (Wildwood Serigraphs, 2010). Substantially more than a reproduction of the original Heroes trading cards, this lovely remastered edition consists of re-scanned, color-stripped B&W images that have been retouched and newly color-coded by Crumb. The artist narrowed down the original field of 36 portraits to only 25, the better to display each at a greater size. The title logotype, too, is newly designed. Signed and numbered by Crumb. Musicians depicted: Ed Bell, William Moore, Skip James, Clifford Gibson, and Blind Willie Johnson (upper tier); Frank Stokes, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Memphis Minnie, Jaybird Coleman, and Blind Blake (2nd tier); Leroy Carr & Scrapper Blackwell, Peg-Leg Howell, Sleepy John Estes, Bo-Weavil Jackson, and Sam Collins (3rd tier); Mississippi John Hurt, Furry Lewis, Son House, Tommy Johnson, and Blind Gary Davis (4th tier); and Blind Willie McTell, Charlie Patton, Buddy Boy Hawkins, Barbecue Bob, and Big Bill Broonzy (5th tier). Image area, 16.5" x 25.5". Excellent condition.
