Tallarico, Tony (illus.)

NY: Tuffy Books, 1990. Octavo-sized Tuffy Tote Book with accompanying design templates and original artwork. Book is (12)pp. These items demonstrate the design process for children's board books, with particular attention in the templates to text layout, branding, and die-cuts that enhance illustrations on either side of a page. The templates display editorial marks in pen, with text and branding taped and pasted on top. Not only do these materials reflect the steps involved in creating children's books, but they also represent the late-career efforts of their artist, Tony Tallarico, who spent most of his life in the world of comic books. Tallarico is particularly known for being the artist behind "The Great Society" comic book, published by Parallax, which satirized the administration of Lyndon Baines Johnson, and the short-lived series "Lobo" of Dell Comics, the first comic with an African-American to headline his or her own series. Bumps to corners of templates and book, handle at top of book creased, stickers inside front board, which cover up an inked inscription. Near fine. Item #27691

Price: $1,250.00
