Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

This privately printed Christmas card from 1941 is a good example of Bob's wit and originality and a showcase for the techniques derived from his work in commercial art. Trompe l'oeil effects and an expert rendering of different surfaces and textures are combined with insider jokes: his Bayside, NY telephone number is among the grafitti scrawls.
