The five MICHEL VAILLANT ART STRIPS included in this box come from the original Jean Graton's drawings of the mythical albums " Le Grand Défi " (1959) & " Le Fantôme des 24 heures " (1970).
The Art Strip "Le Mans '57" comes from a story drawn by Jean Graton in 1957 for the Tintin newspaper: "La 24ème Heure". This short story of 4 plates is integrated in this box in original plate format.
The prints are made on high quality Fine Art Bright White Paper (Hahnemühle) in 30x45cm. The pigment ink projection printing (with an anti-UV treatment) enhances the magnificent brush inked drawing by Jean Graton as well as the colours of his wife Francine, enhanced in a Pop Art style by the graphic designer.
Each print, numbered by hand out of 300 copies, is presented in a transparent protective sleeve.
A certificate of authenticity from Graton Editeur is included in the box, numbering each MICHEL VAILLANT ART STRIPS BOX x 24H du Mans from 1/300 to 300/300.
