"BEAUTY WITH UNICORN" - BB7

This is one of eighteen full-color plates from the 1980 edition of "Beauty and the Beast" published by The Green Tiger Press.

The illustrations are by renowned artist Michael R. Hague. (Please note that his signature is evident on the plate but it is NOT an original signature.)

* * * The repeated watermark pattern showing on the scan is NOT on the actual plate. * * *

The plate measures approximately 7-1/8 inches wide by 9-3/4 inches tall.

The illustration is printed on one side of the paper.

Each plate was laid-in which, in bookspeak, means that the illustration was not printed on a page that was bound into the book. Rather, these prints were separately printed on semi-gloss paper of a slightly heavy weight and then glued onto pages bound into the book.

The glueing was done along the left side of most of the prints starting approximately 1/4 inch in from the side and approximately 1 inch in from both the top and bottom. The bead of glue measures approximately 1/4 inch wide.

For framing purposes, the print can be very carefully removed by slowly peeling it away from the book page, making certain to maintain a firm grip near the peeled area with both hands so as to not bend or tear the print. Alternatively, you can very carefully trim away the book page from the print. We will not remove the prints for you.

The page the plate is attached to was carefully cut off the book's binding.

Behind the plate and printed on the book page is the title of the illustration. (The "BB" number you see alongside the illustration's title, above, is our file number to assist us in locating the plate.)

Please understand that in the scan you will see a thin "frame" of the book page the illustration is attached to and which is NOT part of the illustration itself. We included this "frame" when we cropped the scans so that the complete illustration would show here.

Please keep in mind that every computer monitor presents colors differently. The colors in these illustrations is rich and do appear correct on OUR computer monitor.

This is a guilt-free way to collect the Michael Hague prints you want without having to destroy a book in order to obtain them.

Please keep in mind that these plates are from a used ex-library book and, as such, may have occasional signs of handling. However, for its age and the fact that it was a library book, these prints are in remarkably good condition.

As sellers of quality used books online, we often find books in thrift shops or yard sales that are damaged and too ragged to sell in our store but which are interesting for a variety of reasons. Usually we're extremely adverse to cutting up books. However, considering the very ragged state of this particular book's cover, we've decided to remove the color plates and offer them individually.

To answer questions we've already received: Price is NOT negotiable. The photo you see is the only one provided; we will not provide a non-watermarked photo via email.

We hope we've answered all questions you may have; if not, please feel free to convo us or email us at tibooks [!at] yahoo.com.

A NOTE ABOUT SHIPPING: Quoted shipping includes weight of secure wrapping. The Poster will be securely wrapped flat for shipping. IF YOU WANT INSURANCE, PLEASE REQUEST IT BEFORE YOU MAKE YOUR PURCHASE!
