Pheonix, AZ -
Here's a real treat for the most hardcore Steve Rude collector. Our upcoming book Steve Rude: Artist in Motion will have an extremely limited super deluxe edition. Only 13 are being made, with 12 of them for sale to the public. Each will contain a finished original watercolor bound into the book. These pieces are phenomenal!
These limited books will also have a special slipcase unique to these 13 copies. This will be a truly unique and special item. The prices will range from $300.00 to $500.00 depending on the artwork contained within. Certain pieces will have a higher value than others, depending on the subject matter. Flesk Publications provided Steve with no guidelines and he drew whatever he pleased. They came out exceptional.
If you want to have the opportunity to purchase one of these books, here's what you need to do. Send John Fleskes an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. He will add you to the reservation list. So far, there are five people signed up. He will be posting the artwork contained in the books on his website in the coming weeks, along with the prices. He will then let the people select which artwork they would like based on when they signed up. The first person gets first choice, the second gets second choice, etc. I don't expect these to last.
All proceeds for these books will go directly to the Rude family.
