    Description

    Edgar Church Features Title Page Preliminary Original Art (Ideal Art Service, c. 1930s). Church's dedication to community-service groups in Denver (his home-base city) led to the design of many program books and activity guides. This evocative conceptual drawing appears to have originated as a cover or title page for such a publication. (Church looms large in comics history as the compiler of the legendary Mile High Collection of first-generation funnybooks.) Graphite on bond paper; the letterhead of an advertising agency appears on reverse. Image area, 8.5" x 11". Moderate toning and one torn corner. Very Good condition.
