Wanted: 1970's David W. Teske Celestial Star Chart 
by Lenka Reznicek [permalink] 
For several years, without success, I've been trying to locate a copy of a beautiful wall poster that has hung for nearly thirty years on a family member's staircase wall. It's a Celestial Chart (catalog #1024-A) drawn by David W. Teske, printed in the early 1970's by a small Corte Madera, CA, publishing company named Pomegranate. The phone number and address listed in fine print at the poster's border are dead ends, but from following a few Google tracks, I suspect this company may have become Pomegranate Communications of Petaluma, CA. Unfortunately, they no longer carry this item.

The poster is about 4'x5' in size, printed in white and blue on heavy black background matte paper, has an intriguing characteristic: all the text is in regular typeface, except for the label "Pleiades," which is set in italics.

Anyone know where I could find a copy?
