Here is the special Baum Bugle on Wizard of Oz illustrator W W Denslow–published to honor him 100 years after his death in 1915. Guest-edited by yours truly, this is a lavish, double issue with four full-color pages showcasing Denslow art! Even if you think you know W W Denslow’s work, you probably will be surprised at his creative breadth and some of the images in this issue. Also includes information on his tenure at the Roycrofters.
Spring 2015, 92 pages, with a stunning front and rear cover and the following articles in addition to the normal sections. In very good condition, a few with edge wear or minor printing flaws to cover. No longer available from the Oz Club.
