I have a copy of not-often-seen Pagan Publishing's portfolio of art for their Call of Cthulhu work, entitled, Graven Images.  My copy is No. 67/250.

The pics are on heavy card and are quite large, about 16" high (I have put a ruler in one pic for scale).  The set includes the cover art that was banned from Gencon in 1992, from the Cover of Courting Madness, here entitled "Censored by TSR" by the author  :D

This envelope does not have the brass rivets that were attached to some portfolios.

Anyway, anyone have any guesses as to value?  I was thinking about maybe selling it.  It found it sitting in a cupboard (I have been tidying the flat today - early spring cleaning) and I forgot I had it.  So maybe it is not that important to keep...

They don't come up very regularly, Steven, and are on of the early rather limited releases.  I'll have to compare to my riveted copy(ies?) to see what my #s are:  I'm surprised that they have variants on the envelope within a mere 250 copy print run!

Value-wise, I think you'd get at least $100 for it, perhaps as much as $250 if you ran into the right "must have" collector.

Low print run early Pagan stuff... who the eff knows?  Prices range from high to insane (pun intended).

Allan's guess sounds good.  I'd *think* you'd get less than for something comparable (Courting Madness, Stark Raving Mad, etc) that has usable content, but maybe that goes out the window - we are talking about zealous CoC collectors.

I am looking for one copy for a while and never managed to get one. I guess it could go for at least $200, certainly more around $300.
