The Works, Ohio

Basic RGBLarry Gets Lost is part of “Story Tellers, the Art of the Story Book” a show currently running at the Ohio Center for History, Art & Technology, ”The Works” Gallery.

The building has a recognizable red brick facade based on its previous location in an old factory. They asked me to design one of the posters for the show so I incorporated the facade as a bookend. behind it I stacked some books that were important to me as a child (and happened to still be on my bookshelf). The books are The Story of Ferdinand (illustrated by the incomparable Robert Lawson), The Complete Sherlock Holmes, Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe, and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz illustrated by W. W. Denslow.
