First edition. One of only 24 SIGNED copies of this "self portrait"--each numbered 1/1 in pencil, as each has been hand-colored by Steadman (making each one unique). According to Steadman, "My hair was an absolute bitch that day as I prepared to travel. So a hat was a must. I spent ages in front of the mirror, adjusting it, adding color, tilting it this way and that until it was just right. Then I remembered the frock. I had to start all over again. The frock was a bit of a struggle even if I say so myself, but it hid a multitude of sins--I simply can't tell you. Anyway, to cut a long story short, I swept away on an idyllic frolic in Crete with an absolute waster--he said he was a Hollywood Follicolist, who specialized in hair transplants to ageing Megastars. He did mine, for God's sake! But never mind that--and never again!!!" Hand fingered in watercolor and crayons by the artist to achieve a close facsimile to the original but each one is unique. Joe Petro has managed to capture the fine work of the original ink drawing. It is from a series the artist calls 'knee jobs', which are drawings mainly created on a light drawing board resting on his knees. One-color hand printed silkscreen on White Coventry cotton paper measuring 30 x 44 inches. Fine. Bookseller Inventory #
