    Description

    Frank Xavier Theban Tinsley Air Trails Pictorial Magazine Preliminary Cover Original Art (Street & Smith Publ., 1948). Air Trails Pictorial, a precursor of the influential American Modeler magazines, made fine use of Tinsley over the long term, as both a science-fact and science-fantasy illustrator. The present selection afford a rare chance to catch Tinsley in the act of conceptualizing a painting, laying down a fully painted broad-stroke composition with near-finishing touches. (His hand-lettering is a close replica of the typeset final version.) Accompanied by a tearsheet of the published cover. Acrylics and oil-pastel touches on illustration board. Image area, 9" x 11.5". Editorial markings at lower-right/center portion. Barked corners and slight fraying at edges. Very Good condition.
