Well, I did it again. I was planning a big exhibit for this weekend to celebrate the 125th item posted. Then I reviewed my notes, and realized I had only counted one of the two Little Lotta Mini-maquettes. This means that the Artist Proof of the Richie Rich Mini-maquette was actually the 125th exhibit.

I frequently feel like running the Harvey Mercheum is a lot like juggling, trying to keep many balls in the air at once. It turns out that I am a terrible juggler.

Today we go from the cut-and-pasted mock-up of an advertisement for Little Audrey to some slick advertising pages Classic Media did for their characters back in 2004:
I had mentioned back in December that there are bits of Harvey corporate culture in the permanent collection which would not have been available to the general public but which have found their way into the collectibles marketplace. I was recently reminded that it has been a while since I posted any of these, so today I would like to share a “mock-up” or “paste-up” of an advertisement promoting Playful Little Audrey. The copyright beneath Audrey is 1961, so that is probably a good estimate of this piece’s age.
There are several items in the Harvey Mercheum permanent collection which are not merchandise, but which I want to share anyway. Several of these items are bits of Harvey corporate culture, which would not have been available to the general public but which have found their way into the collectibles marketplace. I shall present these items as posts but not exhibits.
