About this Item

This past president of the Society of Illustrators (1965-67) specialized in artwork for illustrated paperback covers, creating scintillating covers ranging from mainstream to mysteries. Signed Postal Cover, 6½" X 3½", n.p., n.y. NOT a First Day Cover, but a mint example of Bobertz's 4-cent "Employ the Handicapped" postage stamp is affixed at upper right. At lower left, in black ballpoint, Bobertz signs large and bold. Accompanied by a TLS, 1p, 7¼" X 10½", New York, NY, 1969 October 28. Addressed to Paul Johnston. Near fine. Good content in which the artist discusses his 1960 stamp design. In part: "For quite a time, the Employ the Handicapped stamp was used in this area in rehabilitation work and I am happy to see. that it is still useful. I have no idea of how many of these stamps were issued but the Post Office Department reprinted them twice." Small portion of original transmittal envelope present. A nice piece of postal history.
