Huemer Draws the President

Political Primer

If you know Dick Huemer’s drawing style, you won’t need to look at the signature to identify this illustration as his work. It’s of President Lyndon Baines Johnson dancing with a dame representing the U.S. voter, and that’s Barry Goldwater cutting in.

The image above is part of the cover of a 1964 LP titled Presidential Primer — full art here — and was shared with me by Andrew Leal. I don’t know much about it except that Huemer wrote part of it. Perhaps Andrew will tell us more in the comments.
