This outstanding limited edition portfolio includes an individually numbered copy of the book THE ART OF COMBAT which is personally signed by artist Richard Taylor and issued in a luxurious embossed slipcase. Each book is accompanied by a matching numbered copy of the superb print FINE TUNING, specially commissioned for this occasion.
Each print is individually numbered and personally signed by the artist Richard Taylor, along with one of the most legendary Luftwaffe Aces of all time:
Major ERICH RUDORFFER Knight’s Cross with Oak leaves and Swords
Serving throughout the duration of World War II from the Battle of Britain, the Eastern Front, north Africa and the Defence of the Reich, he flew Me109’s and Fw190’s and finished flying the iconic Me262 jet. In more than 1000 combat missions, he ended the war as the seventh highest scoring Aces in history with 222 victories.
We have available two stunning remarqued copies. These prints have been returned to Richard’s studio to have an original pencil work hand drawn in the lower margin of the print. Both of these pieces have been completed in a graphite and color combination, creating unique collector’s pieces.
