Äat the very back of an old yellowed folder containing old pencil sketches I found theseÄ so began David Edward Byrdês tale of finding the original concept sketches for 14 of his most exciting and famous illustrations in the back of a dusty file cabinet. Ultimately, he combined them with the final images to create these fascinating two-ups, as he calls them. The left side is a reproduction of the original sketch and on the right side the final version. They are flawlessly printed on beautiful paper and David annotates and signs them in pencil.
About "Godspell," David says, "I was in producer Edgar Lansbury's office to discuss a new show he would be opening Off-Broadway when he took me to his window. 'I'm doing a musical based on the life of Jesus, and I want the poster to look just like that,' he said, pointing down Broadway. If you leaned out his window you would see a giant version of my Follies poster on the marquee of the the Wintergarden Theatre. I agreed to the job, figuring a musical about Jesus fit the Snowball in Hell category. Well, it ran 8 years and even became a movie. At first I jokingly called it "Son of Follies," but now it is even more recognized than its up-town predecessor."
This newly-published artistês proof is an authentic edition created and personally signed by David. It is a very nice print, sized right for easy and economical framing and very\ collectible. It comes with my signed Certificate Of Authenticity and Guarantee (COA).
