�Computers as a Safe Womb� by Will Eisner
(1973). Lot of 2.
of thirteen little known illustrations Eisner drew for the book Freedom�s
The Computer Threat to Societyby Milton R.
Wessel (published in 1974 by Addison-Wesley). Created at a time when
computers were giant-size Univac contraptions and viewed by many,
including the book�s author, as a �threat to society,� these images are
clearly anachronistic in the age of laptops, but that�s part of the
Pen and ink on Bristol board (if the style looks different than
the Eisner look you are accustomed to, keep in mind that the vast
majority of Will�s art was done with brush, not pen).
10 inches wide x
6 3/8 inches high. Signed. $450
This original comes with the original
envelope from the publisher, with Eisner�s hand lettering in several
places, including his extended fling �book mark.�
Provenance: Warranted to be from the Will Eisner estate, which
this agency exclusively represents. Comes with signed Bill of Sale.
