While attending a convention, there was a table that someone had placed a lot of books on, with a sign reading, FREE, PLEASE TAKE ALL YOU WANT. I scanned over the table and picked up 4-5. This one, which I thought was a book on wildlife was in fact a portfolio containing twelve pencilpoint or charcoal wildlife, unsigned prints, 9"x12", printed on heavy textured mat paper, by Dan Feaser . On the reverse side of each print was a description of each drawing. This portfolio was copyrighted in 1972 by Harpers Ferry Historical Association and produced by Museum Press Inc., Washington, D.C.
Inside of the cover is a bio of Dan Feaser:
Dan Feaser is a Pennsylvanian who after WWII moved to Flordia, where he was Art Director for a large department store and advertising agency. He joined the National Park Service in 1957 and has been working in its Division of Museums ever since. As an illustrator-designer, Mr. Feaser's work appears in many of the Park Service areas, both in the visitor center museums and in trailside exhibits. He has illustrated four Harold L.
