Album proof presented to a Cloud Nine art director

Original album cover proof for Harrison’s 1987 release Cloud Nine, 28.5 x 16.7, signed and inscribed on the front cover, “To Gabrielle, love from George Harrison.” Some light edge and border creases, and some scattered light toning to bottom portion of front cover, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Perry Cox, and also by a letter of provenance from the recipient, who writes, in part: ‘While employed as an art director at Warner Bros. Records, I had the pleasure of working for George Harrison designing a number of pieces for the US release of Cloud Nine, including…all the ads, in-store merchandising…George always showed his appreciation to all the staff members working on his behalf, by coming to the label frequently to show his support. George personally brought this signed sleeve to me to show his thanks.’ Cloud Nine was a comeback album of sorts for Harrison, who had taken a five year hiatus from recording. It was also to be his last solo album released during his lifetime. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
