    Description

    [Tom Lea and Carl Hertzog.] Set of Seven Menus for the Hotel Paso del Norte. El Paso: Carl Hertzog, 1937. A complete run of all seven 17" x 11.5" folding menus designed and printed by Carl Hertzog, with illustrations by Tom Lea on the front. Each signed by Tom Lea. All in pristine condition, with the original manila mailing envelope which has been neatly reinforced along the edges with clear tape.

    These illustrated menus would later become the 1946 Calendar of Twelve Travelers Through the Pass of the North, what Lowman, in Printer at the Pass, calls "one of the great printing achievements of modern times." The images created by Lea for the menus proved quite popular at the time, even prompting a Juarez printer to pirate them in a booklet entitled Siete Viajeros.

    Reference: Lowman 279.
