    Description

    Al Avison (attributed) True Love Problems and Advice Illustrated #21 Cover Original Art (Harvey, 1953). It's a tug-boat romance that tugs at your heart strings for this cover crafted at twice-up scale in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12.5" x 18.5". The logo is a vintage stat from this title; however, it is from issue #23, not originally from this one. There is a paste-up paper mask framing the image area on the board, and that is starting to come loose in places. A slit was made in the board around the Tug-boat pilot's cap to allow the original logo to slip behind it. That top of his cap has since been trimmed off completely. The lower caption box is a stat paste-up. In Very Good condition.
