A Writer's Prayer Broadside - FRAMED - Unreleased - Publisher Copy/Artist Proof - Hand Signed by Neil Gaiman BUYERS CHOICE OF ONE (two different unreleased framed broadsides are pictured - BUYER CAN CHOOSE ONE - please read complete description below)

A Writer's Prayer
Released in 1999
by Neil Gaiman, Engravings by George A. Walker
Written by Neil Gaiman with wood engravings by George A. Walker.
Hand printed on handmade paper. Printed with lead type. Illustrations are woodcuts.

These were originally commissioned by Neil Gaiman as gifts for friends; none were made available to the public. There were 150 copies created and given as gifts to Neil's friends. Below is a picture of an example of the final edition released as a gift to Neil's friends. It uses the image titled Diametric Dogs.

For Sale Here in this listing is a choice of ONE of the two different unreleased Publisher/Artist Proof copies, pictured in the listing (in the image section at the top of this page). There are 3 pictures of each in the picture section at the top of the page. Complete descriptions of the differences are below.

The first choice uses the image titled Lucifer On The Darkside. There were originally approximately 3 of these produced as Artist Proofs, They crossed through the printed original edition number, of 150, by hand. The publisher believes that George Walker destroyed the other copies. One was kept and framed by the publisher. This is that copy. Hand signed by both Neil Gaiman and George A. Walker. Broadside appears to have been handled gently. Typically an Artist Proof is handled by several people and is never intended for public view. Overall very nice visual appeal. Appears to be Mint in frame, but please see photos and make your own determination of condition before purchase.

The second choice uses an image of Neil Gaiman himself. There were originally approximately 5 of these produced as Artist Proofs. The publisher says an unknown number of these were destroyed by George Walker. We are unsure if any others survived of the 5. There is a spelling mistake in this edition that was fixed for the final edition. Neil Gaiman hand signed this copy for the publisher as a courtesy and it was framed as the Publisher copy. It is also hand signed by artist George A. Walker. Marked by hand A/P (Artists Proof). Typically an Artist Proof is handled by several people and is never intended for public view. Overall broadside appears to have been handled gently. It appears that this broadside was folded at one point. Overall very nice visual appeal. Colophon is missing, so this proof is considered 1st state. Please see photos and make your own determination of condition before purchase.

These are both extremely rare collector pieces. It is almost impossible to find one of the gift copies, let alone these much rarer Artist Proofs. Shipping and Handling Fees INCLUDE full insurance. The pictures in the listing are actual pictures of the item for sale. Please make all final purchases based on these images. We can send more images by request.
