Crossroads of Commerce Book Crossroads of Commerce: The Pennsylvania Railroad Calendar Art of Grif Teller    (SL)
Cupper, Dan. - Crossroads of Commerce: The Pennsylvania Railroad Calendar Art of Grif Teller. Richmond, VT: Great Eastern Publishing, c1992, p.184, illus., Photography by Ken Murry, 200-plus photos (150 in color), Large 9-inch by 12-inch format, hardbound, cm. ISBN#: 0-9625602-1-9 New.

From K4, M1, S1 and J1 steam locomotives, to P5a and GG-1 electrics, to Baldwin sharknoses and EMD E7 and E8 diesels, this book gives lavish full-page display to every one of the 33 calendar paintings used by the Pennsylvania Railroad to advertise itself from 1925 to 1958.  The story of each painting is told through research, photographs and sketches, and interviews with Grif Teller and others.  Included is a biography of Grif Teller (1899-1993).  With the story of his second railroad-painting career, after he began to accept commissions to paint PRR scenes in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s.  In addition to the stories about his artwork, the Osborne Printing Company (produced the calendars for PRR), and the PRR itself, this truly magnificent hardbound volume reveals many little-known and interesting facts about the artist (e.g. the pseudonym used by Grif Teller when signing commissioned art work while free-lancing during his tenure with the Pennsylvania Railroad).

Originally published at 69.50 US, now retailing elsewhere at 62.50 US plus s&h. This book is out of print, and there is only a very limited supply available--and the price is right! Click Here for More Rare & Unusual Books

Crossroads of Commerce Book - Updated Softbound EditionCrossroads of Commerce: The Pennsylvania Railroad Calendar Art of Grif Teller   Updated Softbound Edition  (SL)
Cupper, Dan. - Crossroads of Commerce: The Pennsylvania Railroad Calendar Art of Grif Teller. Mechanicsburg, PA: Stackpole Books, c2003, p.184, illus., Photography by Ken Murry, 200-plus photos (150 in color), Large 9-inch by 12-inch format, cm. ISBN#: 0-0-8117-2903-6  New.

This is a revised and updated softbound edition of the hardbound book (see above) published in 1992. Almost identical in every respect (e.g. same full-page color images of the artwork appearing on each PRR wall calendar; same full background text on each calendar painting, etc.), this softbound edition brings the story told in the earlier version up to date with Grif Teller's death, the exhibitions of the last 10 years, along with other interesting and some vital revisions. One BIG difference between this book and the earlier publication is that the price is significantly lower! A great gift idea and is a must-have book for any fan of the Pennsylvania Railroad!
