William P. Gottlieb (1917-2006) left very few signed prints in inventory. For many of the available images, only one or two signed prints remain. Upon his death, what was once open edition signed prints are now limited to the few remaining photographs in stock. In addition to being a jazz loverís showpiece, these prints are now rare collectibles.

All photographs are museum quality, silver gelatin prints, signed by William P. Gottlieb. The thumbnail images available for viewing on this site are not the quality that you can expect in the fine art print. Each print was masterfully created by hand using a Gottlieb approved master print as a guide and then carefully inspected by Mr. Gottlieb.

The online store displays many of the limited supply of signed prints that remain in stock. It is possible that in the future unisgned estate prints will be made available for almost any photo in the Gottlieb archive. Please contact us if you want to be kept informed about this possibility. To search the archive of all 1700 Gottlieb collection images, you can view the LOC Gottlieb Archive.
