"Computers Will Replace
Libraries" by Will
No. 6 of
thirteen little known illustrations Eisner drew for the
The Computer Threat to Societyby
Wessel (published in 1974 by Addison-Wesley). Created at
a time when
computers were giant-size Univac contraptions and viewed
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
the Eisner look you are accustomed to, keep in mind that
majority of Will's art was done with brush, not pen).
10 inches wide x
6 3/8 inches high. Signed.
Provenance: Warranted to be from the Will Eisner
