Lone star, three versions

lonestar.jpgThe mysterious “PARTI DE RIEN 1988″ created this copyrighted composite image containing two lone stars, one the famous sign on the Drag, and the other the one seen atop the dome of the Capitol, although the lady and the lone star are replicas of the one pictured here, having been replaced during the course of the restoration. The famous beer sign may be seen in a photo image, by and courtesy of Metblogger mss. The back of this handmade card bears the title “Lone Star,” along with the legend “U.S.A. $2.” I know that, although I wrote on and mailed off many, I have kept some of these handmade cards; this is the second design to surface. Someone told me that there may be a person’s name in addition to “parti de rien” on one of the designs that used to be sold at the Congress Avenue Bookstore, among other places. I hope to turn up one like that and I’m still hoping to learn more about this artist so appreciative of Austin.
