Angel on Ascension

From an angel that had fallen, to an angel on ascension . . .

This was a personal Christmas poster designed and illustrated by Fred G. Cooper in 1925, a veritable pixie of a guy according to his friends.

Cooper was self taught in his skills, and at one time he was art director at the old Life Magazine (the humor mag), where his editor claimed that Cooper had two brains in one: the right frontal brain lobe—mathematical, scientific and precise— and the left lobe completely cuckoo.
