DESCRIPTION
A 15% BUYER'S PREMIUM WILL BE ADDED TO THIS ITEM AT CONCLUSION OF THE AUCTION
David Edward Martin art; cover; 1988; image size 15.5" x 20.5"

Very rare cover to one of TSR's mail order catalogues, likely from late 1988. This whimsical painting, titled 'At Midnight All the Bruins...', depicts the TSR warehouse after hours, being overrun by teddy bears masquerading as characters from the world of pop culture. These catalogues were the only way to order Dungeons & Dragons as well as other TSR merchandise in advance during the time before the internet. Any TSR artwork is rare and desirable, and this piece should be no exception, with its lively subject matter and fun aesthetic. Acrylic on board. Art is in excellent condition, the art has been matted and the matte does show some signs of wear. Initialed by Martin in the painting and signed and titled on the reverse.

Includes a copy of the printed cover.
