    Hanna-Barbera "Swirl" Logo Painting with Cel Overlay (Hanna-Barbera, c. 1970s). The famous swirling star logo was first introduced at the end of Hanna-Barbera cartoons in 1979. It was reused and revised through 2002. Th original swirl was designed by Saul Bass. This is a rare painted board with a cel overlay of the H-B Swirl Star Logo, used extensively by the Hanna-Barbera Studio on corporate letterheads, presentation pieces, business cards, and other style guide uses. This original piece comes to us from the collection of a high-ranking H-B executive, and is a pure piece of Hanna-Barbera history. The logo is 8" in diameter, taped to a 12- field background of lightweight board. Tape on borders; overall Fine condition.
