This is the rare Colophon Page that was originally included in ONLY the Portfolio editions of Andy Warhol's iconic 1981 Myths Sets of 10 color screenprints published by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts, Inc., New York. The 1981 Myths portfolio includes 10 color screenprints: The Shadow, Superman, Mickey Mouse, Dracula, The Star, The Witch, Howdy Doody, Uncle Sam, Aunt Jemima and Santa Claus.

The rare Colophon Page provides complete documentation for each of the 10 Andy Warhol Myths 1981 color screenprints including Printer and Publisher information as well as documentation of the respective number of screens used to create each iconic screenprint in the suite of 10. 

Recognized as requisite justification of Authenticity and Documentation for the Rare 1981 Andy Warhol Ads Portfolio edition of 10 screenprints, ONLY 270 Colophon pages were ever printed, matching the exact number of Ads Portfolios printed in the various editions. Because the Colophon page was only included in the original published Box portfolios of Ads screenprints, many Colophon pages have been thrown away or misplaced. 

Joseph K. Levene Fine Art, Ltd., has sold portfolios and single impressions of virtually every Andy Warhol screenprint published, including numerous unique trial proof screenprints published in a unique color combination. Joseph K. Levene Fine Art, Ltd. also has Colophon pages for sale from other Andy Warhol Portfolios as well as Colophon pages and Original Boxes from the Andy Warhol Moonscape Portfolio.
