This is a pre-order for the Corben Coffret which will be arriving in our store in April. We acquired a limited supply of this Coffret Edition and the Regular Edition before they sold out. Due to the high demand and large number of inquiries we are receiving, we are accepting pre-orders. Reserve your copy now!
Mr. Corben graciously agreed to sign a limited number of bookplates for us that we are including with the purchase of the Coffret.
The Coffret Edition is the deluxe version of the Corben catalogue and includes the regular 160-page catalogue PLUS a second 160-page volume. There is almost no text in the second volume, just 160 more pages of Richard Corben artwork, in chronological order.
Both volumes are housed in an illustrated slipcase.
The Coffret Edition was limited to only 450 copies and sold out in pre-orders before the opening of the festival. (The regular edition of the catalogue sold out during the festival.)
Corben was the 2018 Angouleme Festival's Grand Prix winner and the subject of this 2019 museum exhibition with over 200 original pages gathered together for the first time.
3/21/19 Update: We received clarification today that the total print run of the Corben catalog was 1500 copies. Of those 1500 copies, 450 copies went into the Coffret Edition and the remaining copies were sold as the regular edition.
