Description

    Arnold Roth Humbug #7 Cover with Harvey Kurtzman Tissue Overlay Original Art Group (Humbug, 1958). Hubba, hubba -- these fresh Russian spy satellites know a good thing when they spot it! Arnold Roth was one of the first to satirize the now all-too common spy satellites hanging over our heads, and with this take-of on Paul Chabas' classic 1912 painting, September Morn, he strikes a one-two satiric punch. On October 4, 1957, the surprise launch of Sputnik 1, the first human-made object to orbit the Earth, took the world by storm. This landmark Cold War piece has an image area of 10" x 14". The border and logo are mounted on acetate overlays, and the art is in Excellent condition. Also included with this lot is a color overlay on tissue drawn by Harvey Kurtzman, along with two other tissue overlays, with notes to the printer written in Kurtzman's hand. These overlays have an approximate overall size of 11" x 15.5", and average Good condition.
