This is a Signed Limited edition print.

This is an incredibly rare limited edition screen print (serigraph) created in 1986, signed in pencil by the artist Jean Moebius Giraud.

The serigraph was published by 'Reporter', after the first three Starwatchers were published by Aedena. The print was strictly limited to 200 examples.

It is incredibly rare that any of the Moebius Starwatcher prints become available, this forms part of a near mythical edition of science fiction collectibles. The first four Starwatcher prints were screen printed to incredibly high standards using extremely precise techniques.

This artwork was also used as the front cover of Moebius Comics #1

Moebius helped form the way modern science fiction ideas have been established, and not only worked in the field of comics and graphic novels, but also worked on classic films such as Alien, Tron, The Abyss, The 5th Element and an unfortunately never completed version of Dune which was even to star Salvador Dali... His influence can not be over stated.

Several iconic exhibitions have been dedicated to the artist's work over the last 40 years including 'Trans Form' at the Fondation Cartier in Paris and a retrospective at the Max Ernst institute in Germany, which also showcased works by the artist created for books such as Paolo Coelho's The Alchemist, La Faune de Mars, and original paintings created for the Sony Metreon Centre in California, where artists including Maurice Sendak and Jean Giraud were invited to create interiors for entire floors. The catalogues for each of these exhibitions have now understandably become collectors items.

Please note that this is a lettered ‘HC’ print signifying that it was not intended for sale. ‘HC’ stands for ‘Hors Commerce’ which means this would have been kept by the publisher or given to one of the collaborators on this project. Very rare indeed.
