    Description

    Edgar Church Valentine Image Preliminary Original Art (c. 1960s).
    The Church style is self-evident, even without that distinctive signature or any notations as to the purpose of this sentimental conceptual piece. Likely this one served as a rehearsal for one of the many luncheon-program booklets that Church designed for his club of telephone-company pioneers in Denver. The Bell System was Church's bread-and-butter, what with his standing assignment to deliver Yellow Pages advertisements. (In his spare time, Church also compiled the legendary Mile High Collection of first-generation comic books.) Pencil on tracing paper. Image area, 8" x 11". Overall smudging, with ragged edges. Good condition.
