These 2 photographs (16" x 20") have each been SIGNED by Bukowski and Montfort and are numbered 3/50. In addition, Bukowski has annotated each photograph in red ink. The images are: 1) Bukowski seated in his apartment before a table full of alcohol remnants and wildly gesturing captioned "Living the Good Life" and 2) Bukowski lying down in a cemetery before a grave stone captioned "Just Kidding." Laid in is a letter from the bookseller explaining how he got Montfort to print these photographs and Bukowski to sign them in the hospital where he was dying of leukemia.
