We're commemorating the publication
of the third volume of our Little Black Book with a--"kickass"
isn't quite the word--let's say "rocking" free print
Our prints are 8.5" X 11"
(with image areas in the 7" X 9" range), and not officially
limited (although if we ever have to produce even close to 500
of any one image, we'll be stunned into unconsciousness).
But each print is lovingly handcrafted
via Epson inkjet on heavy photo stock, and--here's the interesting
part--signed by both Steve and Rich.
It's true: Rich (the pencil guy)
does many conventions, and will autograph a hamster if it has
an F&L connection--so his signature is virtually worthless.
But Steve (the mysterious,
wildly talented airbrush guy), is almost always hidden away in
a dusty corner of our studio, poring over volumes of forgotten
lore and painting his eyes out.
It's the inclusion of his
rarely seen John Hancock that makes our prints very close to
worth the mildly annoying effort it takes to obtain them.
As Devo sings, freedom of choice
is what you want--and with our LBB3 free print offer, freedom
of choice is what you got.
You can select your print from
among any of the images (just a few of which are shown here)
on our Prints page OR our three Originals pages. (Signed prints of
images from our Originals pages are ONLY available with this
That's 48 images from which to
And more still: since the gold
pens will already be fired up, we'll sign your copy of LBB 3
as well! That's twice as many F&L signatures as you'll ever
Here's the deal: ordered from
us, LBB 3 is $10, plus $5 s&h (we ship in re-enforced packaging
by Priority Mail).
Ordinarily, our prints are $10
each--but with this offer, the print of your choice is signed,
slipcased, and carefully added to the package at no extra charge.
To sum up (for those who, like
us, are products of the American educational system): you get
both a spanking (in more ways than one) new signed copy of Little
Black Book 3, plus a signed F&L print of your choice shipped
directly to you--a $25 value--for $15.
Yes, we're out of our minds--and
we're passing the savings along to you.
Here's the mildly annoying part.

signature! Order LBB 3 from us and get your free signed print
Little Black Book Vol. 3 features fifty rarely seen and never
published images, including 22 fully painted pages created especially
for two new stories in this issue.
Comic book covers, digital art,
unpublished Marvel portfolio plates, the toothsome Widow Grueson
and a bevy of babes fantastiques--this is F&L
chicanery at its drollest--and most indispensable.
