Jim Flora Art LLC has released a limited-edition, archival-quality fine art print of a classic Jim Flora album cover illustration. The original Lord Buckley album, entitled Hipsters, Flipsters, and Finger-Poppin' Daddies, Knock Me Your Lobes, was released on RCA Victor in 1955. Vintage copies of the LP (which was packaged in a 10" sleeve) are rare and fetch high prices from collectors (fans of both Lord Buckley and Flora).
Produced in 2007 by Flora archivist Barbara Economon, the print was meticulously and painstakingly crafted from a mint-condition artist's proof sheet of the Buckley cover in the Flora collection. The image area is 12" square (larger than the original RCA 10" album), and the trim size of the entire sheet is 19" x 13".
Only ten (10) prints were produced for this edition. Each print is hand-numbered in the lower right corner beneath the image and authenticated on the reverse with the stamped seal of Jim Flora Art LLC (a Flora family enterprise). We have sold numbers 5/10 thru 10/10, and are now offering number 4/10 at $360. Prices will increase for subsequent prints as the edition depletes.
The unframed prints are on heavyweight (310g) mould-made William Turner stock, a natural white, 100% rag paper with a fine toothy surface manufactured by Hahnemühle, who are renowned for premium-grade archival papers. The edition was produced on an Epson 3800Pro large format printer using Epson UltraChrome K3 Pigment Ink Technology, resulting in brilliant, velvety color and offering excellent longevity and durability.
The print will ship flat, securely packaged and guaranteed against bending or dents. Print includes a detailed, custom-printed one-sheet with instructions for the proper care of this fine art reproduction.
Due to the fine art print's higher-resolution process, as well as superior paper, inks, and quality control, the colors in the print appear brighter, crisper, and more vibrant than the online image. Online color appearance may vary slightly depending on your monitor settings.
