Mambo For Cats

1955 album cover illustration
open edition mini-prints



One year after selling out our oversized (20″ square) Mambo For Cats limited edition screen print, we launched a smaller gicleé edition of 200. We also offer miniature archival-quality giclée prints of this renowned (and hard-to-find) Jim Flora 1955 RCA Victor album cover. The mini-print artwork is 7″ x 7″ on an untrimmed 11″ x 8-1/2″ sheet. (By comparison, the original album cover was 12″ x 12″ and the screen print is 20″ x 20″.)

The prints were produced using Flora archivist Barbara Economon’s digital restoration of a vintage printer’s proof, with colors meticulously matched to the original. The unframed prints are on heavyweight (310g) mould-made William Turner stock, a natural white, 100% rag paper with a fine toothy surface manufactured by Hahnemühle, who are renowned for premium-grade archival papers. The edition was produced on an Epson 3800Pro large format printer using Epson UltraChrome K3 Pigment Ink Technology, resulting in brilliant, velvety color and offering excellent longevity and durability.

This is an open, unnumbered edition. Each print is authenticated on the reverse with a stamped seal from Jim Flora Art (a Flora family enterprise). As on the screen print, the trademark “Flora” mid-1950s signature, which did not appear on the original LP cover, has been added in the lower right to “brand” the work.

The prints are priced at $30 each. The print will ship flat via USPS. If it arrives damaged, it will be replaced. We offer discounts for quantity purchases; please inquire before ordering.

Due to the fine art print’s higher-resolution process, as well as superior paper, inks, and quality control, the colors in the print appear brighter, crisper, and more vibrant than the online image. Online color appearance may vary slightly depending on your monitor settings.
