How To Drive


Recently got a swell gift from my friend Amy.  I'm a big fan of mid-century illustration (or MC anything) so I was, as the Californians say, "stoked" to get such a fabulous manual.  It is quite a contrast to the stock photo laden and text blocks of the current California drivers manual. Governor Schwarzenegger, we don't have to be nostalgic for a bygone era of beautifully illustrated driver manuals, just hire a good illustrator for next year. If you need a recommendation, I know of a few. Thanks. See more fab illos from the manual by William K. Markey and Paul A. Reed as well as Louis H. Calnek here.  Gonna follow up soon with more work and whatever bio stuff  I can find on these artists.
