This fantastic screen print was the first of Moebius' Starwatcher series, which have become the most recognisable body of his work.
This print was created in 1986 using 20 silk screens to pass the layers of colours that build up the image. All the screens used to meticulously print the image were destroyed once the print run was over.
This is #75 from the US numbered edition of 300. There is an inscription handwritten on the reverse of the print reading 'Starwatcher Graphics Inc (C)'. Now over 30 years old, the thick art paper used for printing has tanned slightly, but the colours of the ink are bright as can be. Some would say this print is one of the rarest Unicorns ever to be published by Moebius as it's scarcity is legendary.
The printed area is 475mm x 688mm, the overall print is slightly larger.Click for larger image ...
