An Early drawing by Moebius (Jean Giraud) reproduced here as a rare hand signed screen-print edition on super lush heavy duty French Arches paper. This copy is hand numbered H/C (hors commerce- not for sale) so must have once belonged to the publishing house, artist or a collaborator. One of only fifty produced.
This image appeared in the 'Futures' section of the 1983 publication 'La Memoire du Futur'. Interestingly, the girl in the chair is wearing a Spider-Man T-Shirt, and the publication dated to the year Moebius was set to move to America where he ended up collaborating with Stan Lee and working with Marvel - the inclusion of the Spider Man emblem could have been a nod to the future.
Another notable feature of this piece is Moebius' mastery of perspective - achieving so much with so little.
