Signed and numbered Michael Whelan print

whelanItem Name and Description: A signed and numbered (102/150) print of Michael Whelan’s cover for Isaac Asimov’s The Robots of Dawn.

This was purchased not long after the book came out, hung on a wall out of direct sunlight for a few years, then stored. Unfortunately the storage area had a brief humidity issue. The print was not badly affected, but there are a few rough areas on the mat where spots were removed, and the surface of the print is slightly warped (re-matting it might or might not fix this).

The flaws are honestly nearly invisible when the print is behind glass as it should be. (Note that the original frame is not included.)

The size (with the mat) is 16″x20″,

Starting Bid: 50

Shipping: United States for free, outside the US for an additional donation which could be steep (please ask first)

Bidding opens on Wednesday, May 25, 2016 at 12:01 a.m. Eastern (time zone conversions). It will close on Sunday, June 5, 2016 at 4:00 p.m. (time zone conversions, countdown) unless bids are received in the last ten minutes (learn more).
