Rose, Alan (supporting text by O'Rourke, P.J.).
Three Illustrations [Original Art]:. Boyhood Penships Realized as Aircraft and Spacecraft (set of three illustrations).
New York: Alan Rose/National Lampoon, circa 1977. These three illustrations supported an article by P.J. O'Rourke in the National Lampoon (circa '76-77). This was from the "Conspiracy Issue". The penships had to do with the Air Forces' secret weapons, which curiously resembled ball point pens. The artist suggests it was supposed to "remind certain males of their 14 year-old, bored classroom fantasies." A truly exceptional collection of images. Signatures/personalization by both Rose and O'Rourke available. Fine. Item #3058 Spot of tape ghosting on one board, else bright and clean. Pen, ink and watercolor on board. All approximately 9"x14". Color illustrations.
