Oz auctioneer, bibliophile and illustrator Dick Martin drew other things not related to Oz. This includes a gig he had for a greeting card company in the 50s, where he designed a great variety of comic cards. Martin’s art is bold, colorful and his humor is quirky and sly. He signs most of them “DM”. Here is a small “Thank you for the thank you” card, featuring a black cat and the Rodin “thinker” sculpture on the back. Just 2″x6.5″ in size, comes with original envelope. See my other “Choice” lot of larger Martin cards at $12 each.
