Untitled (Nancy with Gun)
A hand-pulled lithographic reproduction of one of Brainard’s earliest Nancys
Numbered + stamped edition of 100. 6 1/2″ × 9 1/4″ hand-pulled lithograph housed in a foil-stamped portfolio, inside a slipcase with the book.
This beautiful lithograph reproduces a very early Nancy collage, Untitled (Nancy with Gun), c. 1964, one of the first in which Brainard appropriated the classic comic strip character Nancy and altered the world in which she exists. Executed at Angeles Press in Los Angeles by master printer Toby Michel, this lithograph has an attention to detail that brings the colored newsprint original alive. This limited edition of one hundred was commissioned specifically for the release of the The Nancy Book and is numbered and stamped by the Estate of Joe Brainard, initialed by the publisher and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
Hand-pulled lithograph on Hahnemühle museum etching paper, 350 gsm. Housed in a foil-stamped portfolio and slip-cased with the first edition of The Nancy Book by Joe Brainard.
about limited editions
We sometimes make limited editions in collaboration with the artists and writers we publish to extend the published work in a compelling way. A siglio edition might include an artist’s multiple, an original work of art, a facsimile, or a fabricated object: always something imaginative, beautifully executed, and fairly priced.
Siglio limited editions are valued by individuals as well as institutions. Our limited editions can be found in the libraries of the Museum of Modern Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Walker Art Center, and the Hessel Museum at Bard, Rhode Island School of Design, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Minneapolis College of Art and Design, as well as the special collections of NYU, Stanford, Brown, University of Chicago, Smith College, the Beinecke at Yale and the Danowski Poetry Library at Emory, among many others.

Please note that prices rise as availability decreases and thus are subject to change.
“Here Comes Kitty: A Comic Opera … achieves the hidden aim of all postmodern work. Namely, befuddling the reader with the dilemma: is this sheer brilliance? Or merely incomprehensible nonsense?”[...]
