Thanksgiving: Five Prints from the New Yorker [Signed, Numbered Upper East Side Edition]

Notes: A portfolio of four covers from Thanksgiving issues of The New Yorker plus an online-only comic, a reproduction of Ware's notes for a cover design, and an unlabeled folded sheet reproducing additional color artwork, published in a limited edition of 175 copies, signed by Ware on the inside front cover.

In the trade (a.k.a. Lower East Side edition), Ware published a notice about this signed version:

An outrageously expensive edition of this folio in a limited, unfolded impression of 175 with hardcover covers and a facsimile reproduction of the author’s tepid notes and doodles subsequently signed and possibly further defaced by said author himself {i.e., the “Upper East Side” model} is available to interested exclusive parties and nominated individuals willing to pay for the privilege of handling sheets of paper upon which flakes of skin, essential epidermal oils, or perhaps even DNA from the corpus of its artist have briefly made abrasion or even permanent affiliation.

Five large prints roughly 15 by 20 inches, printed in full color on heavy, quality paper. Hardcover portfolio slightly larger. Issued as the ACME Novelty Library #18-1/2.

Edition + Condition: A fine set in a fine slipcase (with a few minor marks from handling). Complete as issued. Copy 150 of 175 signed by Ware.

Publication: Chicago: ACME Novelty Library, 2007.
