    Description

    Edgar Church IT Magazine Cover Preliminary Original Art (1942). Church produced many covers for IT magazine, a trade publication for the communications industry. Being himself a visual communicator (advertising design), affiliated with social-service groups in Denver, Church did many such pieces as this one on a pro bono basis -- drawing for the love of drawing. This rustic scene is a quintessential depiction of summertime in the Rocky Mountains. (Church is also well-known to comics buffs as the developer of the legendary Mile High Collection.) Broad conceptual pencil-strokes on the reverse of a sheet of pre-printed ledger paper. Image area, 7.25" x 10.75". Excellent condition.
