    Description

    Rube Goldberg - Illustration Original Art, Group of 7 (undated). "A busy mind and busy hands can bring happiness." So quotes cartoonist extraordinaire, Rube Goldberg, in a hand-written letter, which is included in this tremendous collection of his work. Seven brush and ink illustrations are here, including several which were used for cartooning lessons, an editorial cartoon, and a drawing which looks amazingly like the design he used to create the legendary Reuben Award. Also added to this stunning selection is a postcard advertisement for a Rube Goldberg art show, which was held at the Truman Gallery, in New York in 1978; an original song sheet featuring the comic song, I'm the Guy, from 1912; and a collection of fifteen photocopies of original Goldberg drawings. All these items average Very Good condition.

    Today I received the catalog which is a work of art unto itself. When I found my lot I was literally blown away by what Craig had done with the presentation....... quite amazing to say the least!
