Lettering: The Dynamite 3-D Poster Book


The Dynamite 3-D Poster Book (1979) featured six illustrations by Neal Adams; the cover art was by Werner Kappes. Neal gave the title lettering job to Tom Orzechowski, who finished four of the six titles. There was a schedule change and the posters were needed right away, so Neal asked me to do the last two titles. The six 3-D titles are featured below. The black-and-white illustrations are from The Neal Adams Treasury 2 (1979).
