Carl Barks' Dam Disaster at Money Lake is a continuous-tone, twelve-color lithograph of a battered-but-not-beaten, umpteen­fastasticatillionaire - Uncle Scrooge McDuck - with his nephews Donald Duck, Huey, Dewey and Louie, surveying the scene of the rich old miser's Money Lake just at the moment the evil doings of the dreaded Beagle Boys burst the dam, allowing Scrooge's life savings to wash downstream into the lowlands. This lithograph has been issued with an accompanying copy of Uncle Scrooge #1 that tells the "story behind the painting." The comic book originally appeared in March, 1952 (Dell's Four Color #356). This reprint is a limited edition of 1,000 that was printed to promote Another Rainbow's 30-volume set of the The Carl Barks Library. Half of this special edition has been set aside to accompany the lithographs, each copy numbered to match a print.
The lithograph's regular edition is of 345 signed and numbered copies. A twin edition of 100 lithographs is stamped with a gold debossed ¼” gold band surrounding the 16" x 20" image area. The paper size is 21 ½” x 25".
Opalesque is a registered archival-quality paper constructed of 100% cotton fiber for strength and longevity and is coated with a mother-of-pearl silken finish. It has exceptional ink holdout that gives it color reproduction of quality and consistency. It is acid free to resist aging and has alkaline buffering to counteract the effects of acids normally present in the environment. If this print is framed or stored under conditions that avoid dust, insects, direct sunlight and extremes in heat, cold and humidity, it will resist fading or yellowing for hundreds of years.
This historic limited edition lithograph has had no previous editions and there will be none in the future. There are no unsigned or unnumbered copies. All printing plates have been destroyed to prevent future use.
Dam Disaster at Money Lake is the eighth Carl Barks lithograph in a series produced by Another Rainbow Publishing. It was printed by The Black Box, continuous-tone lithographers, of Chicago.
