About the Valerie Waldorf Limited Prints

The late Valerie Waldorf [1954-2005] was an all-around artist that had amassed a considerable body of work in pencil, pen & inc, water color, acrylic, scrimshaw, and sculpture before she became famous for her lithic illustrations that first appeared in The Art Of Flintknapping and Story In Stonebooks. Before the ever-popular Best From Story In Stone poster-wall chart, from 1982 to 1984, we made and sold several prints off paintings she did. The first four were printed in black and white because we couldn’t afford color at the time, and the originals were actually painted in black and white acrylic! Anywhere from 1000 to 500 copies were made, and some sold better than others at rendezvous and black powder shoots we used to attend before quitting those and switching to knap-ins. During that period Val’s attempts to break into a mostly male dominated field met with little success, and out of bitterness one day she ordered me to destroy the remaining prints we had stored in the garage. Well, I burned most of them, but not all! What was left I later moved to a steel cabinet in her old studio and now I’m making them available once again. These are in pretty good shape after lying around in storage under varying conditions for 30 plus years. Even so, I have separated out the best and there still may be some discoloration on the white edges which could be covered by a matt when framed. Also, keep in mind these prints are better than the pictures I took of them and you can have them for the same price they originally sold for!
