    “Service” (No. 8416) ft. Frankfurter (Letraset, 1970) served on a platter.

    Covers for various clip books of line art issued in 1984 by Harry Volk Jr. Art Studio, Pleasantville, New Jersey. See the previous post about the “Entertainment” clip book from 1955 for more information on Harry Volk Jr. Art Studio. 1984 saw the introduction of the Apple Macintosh personal computer. The era of clip art booklets was about to end, and Volk to go out of business after three decades. These booklets might have been the last ones to be issued.

    As in previous volumes, almost every booklet’s title features a different display typeface. In this one, all shown titles are set in all caps. “A Clip Book of Line Art” is in light caps from Kabel.
