This is a hand-pulled, fine art lithograph, by S2 Art of the original Chap-Book Blue Lady advertising poster by William H. Bradley.
The Chap-Book was a popular American literary magazine in the 1890s. In 1895, they commissioned William H. Bradley to create a promotional poster for the organization. The result was this iconic Blue Lady advertising poster which became extremely sought after by the general public.
The lithograph is printed on a rare, vintage French Marinoni Voirin press on Rives BFK cotton paper.
This is not a print or reproduction. It is a remastered, recreated, original work of art.
This lithograph was produced at S2 Editions Atelier, New York City, in 1999, under the guidance of the Ré Society, Ltd, and S2 Art company.
This piece bears the trademark of the Ré Society, plus the blind stamped emblem of the S2 Editions Atelier. The signature of the chromist is also printed unobtrusively on this lithograph in order to distinguish it from the original poster.
The lithograph is sequentially numbered in pencil in the lower left border, by a curator at S2 Editions.
Comes with a certificate of authenticity by S2 Art Group, Ltd. Item is packaged and shipped in a museum quality tube.
