    Walter Lantz Oswald the Lucky Rabbit Drawing with Story and Song Book Group and Cards Group (Walter Lantz/Universal Music Company, 1930). After Walt Disney lost the rights to the Oswald the Lucky Rabbit series, series producer Charles Mintz hired Walter Lantz in 1928 to continue making the shorts. Lantz wound up owning the character, producing cartoons starring various versions of Oswald until 1938, and Oswald would continue to make brief film and book appearances for a number of years. This sturdy ink on paper image of Oswald was done for the business card of animator Lester Cline (three examples of later cards featuring Oswald are included with the art). The image measures approximately 3.5" x 2.75", and includes an "Art Deco" Walter Lantz Prod. stamp on back. In addition, a book featuring art, story, and song/music charts is included; it measures 9" x 12", and was signed on the first inside page by Walter Lantz. The book and art are both in Very Good condition, with minor handling/edge wear and mild paper toning.
