The Tabletop World of Frank Soltesz

Over the course of several years before and after 1950, illustrator Frank Soltesz painted I-don't-know-how-many of these gigantic cutaway scenes for Armstrong's Industrial Insulations. Soltesz's miniature Americans lived and worked in a world that looks like the model railroader's ultimate tabletop dream. A few years back I sent a half dozen or so of these images out to the then much smaller TI group.

But there are more. Many more. This week, let's take a look at the tiny, busy world of Frank Soltesz.

Soltesz's work MUST be seen at full size to be truly appreciated... take a look at these and the other previously shown pieces I mentioned in my Frank Soltesz Flickr set.
