NEW YORK, October 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Jerrick Media (OTCQB: JMDA), a digital media company founded by Jeremy Frommer and Rick Schwartz, announced today a new partnership with the world's premier online global marketplace for estate sales, EVERYTHING BUT THE HOUSE (EBTH), to auction an exclusive collection of art, photography, and personal ephemera from the late Bob Guccione's estate. Guccione, a painter, photographer, and art collector who is most widely known for founding more than 15 magazines, including Penthouse and OMNI, amassed a personal collection of eclectic art and collectibles spanning across five decades of his life. A series of curated online auctions will take place on EBTH.com starting in late fall 2016.
Jerrick Media CEO Jeremy Frommer said, "The team at Jerrick has spent years acquiring and curating this amazing collection. We're pleased to share it with the world through our partnership with EBTH. Most people see Bob Guccione as the man behind Penthouse magazine, when in reality he was a widely respected artist, illustrator and art collector."
Frommer discovered the Guccione collection in a storage locker after the publisher passed away in 2010, and later purchased the bulk of his assets to share with art aficionados, pop culture fans and collectors around the world.
"We are excited to present the passionate work of Bob Guccione to collectors and art lovers looking to add unique, one-of-a-kind pieces to their collection," says Brian Graves, co-founder of EBTH. "This collection provides the public with a unique insight into the life and pursuits of this notable and often controversial public figure. EBTH allows bidders from around the world to discover unique pieces from a wide variety of previously inaccessible collections, and these examples from Bob Guccione's estate are no exception."
Auction items will include original artwork, vintage pin-up photography, Guccione's personal and corporate ephemera, Penthouse and OMNI magazine memorabilia including original comic illustrations and photographic negatives, and Gore Vidal's Caligula memorabilia. All items will start at a $1 bid with no reserve.
More details on the auctions will be released on EBTH.com later this year.
