Description

    Al Avison First Romance Magazine #1 Cover Original Art (Harvey, 1949). Golden Age great Al Avison turned in the first cover for this Harvey romance vehicle that ran for almost 10 years. The cover image was created twice-up scale in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12.75" x 18.5". There are several paste-up elements on this cover, with some bits cut and moved around. The logo is a stat paste-up. All word balloon text is hand-lettered on Bristol board pieces that are cut and pasted on. The caption box text is composed of individually printed letters, cut and fitted together on Bristol board. The radio was cut from the left (under the caption boxes) and moved to the bottom center. There are some header elements missing, leaving glue residue in their wake, and there are some whiteout art corrections. On the whole, the page is in Very Good condition. Comes with a copy of the printed book in GD/VG condition.
