Bank of America Traveler's Checks Posters (1978)

Spotted these as available on eBay. Hadn't seen them before, and no, they're probably not worth the asking price at $450 (although they've got to be considerably rarer than some later works), but they're interesting for what he produced in 1978. Note how similar they are to the Gatsby pieces that were up a few months ago, then take a look at Casa Lupita and Iowa Agronomics - there's a definite evolution in style that happens rapidly at this point, and these aren't too far off from those early posters. Then also realize he's got basically 5 years of career left from this point. It's interesting to contemplate.
