Wow, I'm a featured article in Record Collector News! See
LINK for my two cents on my onetime graphic art teacher, the redoubtable, visual arts icon-creator John Van Hamersveld.

Here's the missing first paragraph, which somehow slid between the pixels onto the floor and out of sight: 

The listing in one of those freebie further education-type syllabi read 'Night Classes, Commercial Art Design taught by John Van Hamersveld,' and I practically broke the sound barrier getting my paperwork and filthy lucre in to take this course.

Loved your article on Hamersveld--we OWN the poster from Endless Summer, framed in the study. Nice to hear from someone who actually took a class with him, that he was honest in assessing his students. That's rare.
