Lot 0282A
Ink and pencil illustration by Michel, 1943. 6" x 8".

In December, 1987, a major auction was held of the Forrest J. Ackerman Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Collection. To give a sense of the importance of that event, catalogue introductions were written by Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, Stephen King and Steven Spielberg, all of whom spoke of Ackerman's important influence on the fields covered in his collection. This stark vision of a man standing in rubble shielded from a futuristic urbanscape is powerful in its starkness. This illustration was part of the Ackerman Collection.

This is an unreserved auction with no minimums. This is an online only sale. Items may be viewed upon appointment in New York City.
