    Description

    Edgar Church Driverless Cars Original Advertising Art (Ideal Art Service, 1930s). Church's Denver-based design studio delivers a prophecy of the 21st century's "driverless car" concept -- of course, the term in the 1930s meant merely that a client could hire a chauffeur for sightseeing around the scenic Rockies. Church's lively art and pitch-perfect hand-lettering combine to dynamic effect. (Church also is known as the developer of the legendary Mile High Collection of first-generation comic books.) Ink, collage, and crayon-shading on Coquille board. Image area, 9" x 8.5". Conspicuous toning, adhesive staining, and loosened text areas. Good condition.
