Original artwork by Detroit News editorial cartoonist Draper Hill for the annual Christmas card of longtime Detroit bookseller, Tom Schlientz.

np (Detroit) nd (c. 1990s) Approx 12.5 x 17.5, framed in metal frame to 13 x 17.75, nice condition though with paper tape across top. Tom Schlientz commissioned Draper Hill to produce an original Christmas card every year from the mid 1980s through the early 2000s. This card shows a caricature of Schlientz (an avid collector of anything Moose related) riding a wooden rocking-moose, with various moose related items in background ("Mossle-toe," a stocking for a moose hanging in front of a roaring fire, two pun-ny pictures on the wall, a tree decorated in antlers, etc). A great opportunity to own an original Draper Hill cartoon, and a great memory of own late store manager, Tom Schlientz, a fixture in the Detroit book scene for more than 50 years, and one of the founders of the Book Club of Detroit. "Merry Chrismoose" the banners say.
