Vintage Sesame Street Library Volume 13 Joe Mathieu Original Cover Art For Sale
In the early 1970s, Sesame Street was really picking up steam and winning the love of children and adults alike. Funk & Wagnalls together with Children's Television Workshop released an award winning set of 15 hardcover books called the Sesame Street Library featuring the classic Sesame Street characters teaching letters, numbers, and early life lessons. These books were reprinted many times throughout the 1970s and 1980s as their popularity continued to grow.
Joe Mathieu was chosen to do the covers and help with the interior illustrations. Joe is a very talented and now famous artist who has illustrated over 100 children's books, hundreds of magazine features and over 60 album and CD covers. The classic covers he did for this series arethe crown jewels ofhis work in my opinion. Up for sale now is the original coverart to Volume 13 of the Sesame Street Library Series.
The originalis un-framed as it was when returned from publication, and the piece is signed by the artist. It is important to remember that this is NOT a print. Thisis the original illustration, and as such, it issold for the personal enjoyment of the buyer. The publisher owns the copyright, so reproduction rights remain with the publisher and are not part of the sale. The Sesame Street Muppet characters are licensed and owned by Sesame Workshop and Muppets, Inc., so NO reproduction of the original art is permitted.
I purchased this directly from Joe a while back. The picture doesn't do the art justice, colors are bright and the artwork is in great shape. The piece is covered in plastic so any glare or rippling is simply from that and not on the artwork itself. I'm also including a copy of thepublished book and shipping isfree.Volumes 11, 14, and 15 up separately for sale (this sale is for Volume 13 only).Don't miss your opportunityon thisone of a kind original art.
