Edgar Church Coolerator Original Art (Church Studio, 1933). Chuck Berry didn't just make up the word Coolerator for his hit recording of "You Never Can Tell" in 1964. The term comes from a once-popular brand of icebox, as documented in this splendid advertising piece from master designer Church. The distinctive heart-shaped design encompasses the logotype of a refrigeration company in Colorado. Church also is a big name among comics enthusiasts, identified with the fabled Mile High Collection. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 9" x 9". Two pasted-in strips of lettering have loosened but remain in place. Excellent condition.
