Jo Mora Trust, Monterey, CA 2007 - Black & white pictographic map. Image size 21 14" x 28 1/2". Printed on 30lb. coated bond paper measuring 24" x 30". Includes signed provenance from the Jo Mora Trust. The original artwork for this carte was discovered several years ago in one of Jo Mora, Jr.'s storage rooms and on his passing in 2006, it became part of the Jo Mora Trust Collection. The Mora Trust recently authorized and commissioned a First Printing, strictly limited to 40 numbered copies.Unsigned and undated, this carte captures the charm of early Santa Catalina Island and romantic Avalon. In the upper right corner, Jo Sr. proclaims in a scroll, 'I dedicate this carte - humorous in its rendering, serious in its intent - to the memory of William Wrigley, Jr., whose appreciaion of the beautiful and means to carry out a dream has made Santa Catalina the island gem of the Pacific it is today.'.
