    "The Art of Hanna-Barbera" Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera Publicity Cel and Key Master Background (Hanna-Barbera, 1972). The Hanna-Barbera Studio celebrated its 15th anniversary in 1972. This is a rare in-house publicity cel used for press and promotional purposes featuring Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera sitting in their respective directors' chairs with "15th" up on a film projector screen. This exact image was used in Jerry Beck's book The Hanna-Barbera Treasury, on page 18. Studio-produced animation art pieces using Bill and Joe are very collectible and hard to find; this is a superb example, one of the best we've seen. Nice images of 5" on a 12 field cel. The cel is on its Key Master hand-painted background made specifically for this setup. Minor handling wear. Very Good condition.
