    Sesame Street Magazine #61 Bert Original Illustration (The Parenting Group, 1977). "Can you tell me how to get... how to get to Sesame Street?" Outstanding published artwork of Bert on the steps of his home on Sesame Street as the mail is arriving. The mail lady has mail for Big Bird, Luis, Bert, and Oscar. We see all their mail boxes in this painting. This was seen on page 10 and 11 -- a two-page spread in the April 1977 issue of Sesame Street Magazine. The theme on the cover was "Sesame Street Comes Special Delivery." The cover had Bert as a postage stamp. This artwork is for the cover story, created in gouache on board measuring 20" x 15" with a painted area of 16" x 10". The illustration is by longtime Sesame Street Magazine artist Mr. Rick Brown, and he has signed the artwork in bottom right corner. Nice images of 5". Original published artwork of the actual Sesame Street and its buildings is very rare. Minor handling and edge wear. Very Good condition.
