18. Oak Park & River Forest Posters by Chris Ware; Signed Special Edition Prints - $550

Two signed, special edition 24" x 33.6" posters of Oak Park and River Forest by noted artist and cartoonist Chris Ware.

High quality Giclee print on 100% acid free white Hahnemuhle paper, signed by Chris Ware. 

Chris used the shared letter "O" in the village names of Oak Park and River Forest as the creative concept behind the visual portals to another time around an architectural landmark specific to each town.  

Chris adds:  “If it's not immediately clear, there are some non-explicit historical details in the (two) images, like Purcell and Elmslie in front of Purcell's house in River Forest, Ernest Hemingway catching a football as a 'tween in front of John Farson's car, someone reading "For Whom the Bell Tolls," Frank Lloyd Wright on the second floor porch of the Heurtley [house] in the 1940s, Philander Barclay, Bowman's Dairy as well as other historic people and events.

The Historical Society of Oak Park and River Forest is proud to offer you the opportunity to own this unique artwork by Chris Ware, renowned graphic novelist and one of Oak Park's own.
