    Otto Messmer Felix the Cat Cover Original Art (Toby Press, c. 1951). Even with all of his fans, Felix just can't cool down, thanks to a rat of a firebug. Otto Messmer gets a nice big credit line on the art, as well he should, since he was the man behind the cat. We couldn't identify the exact cover this art was used for -- a date of May 22, 1951 is stamped on the back of the art - it may be an unpublished cover. The image area measures 18.25" x 19.25", and the art is in Excellent condition. A Messmer Felix cover is sure to be a hot commodity -- so keep your cool and bid.
