Fortunately, the geek in me started making copies of his work and instead of sitting in a folder in my personal archive I want to share these drawings with as many people as possible. If you look long enough at these drawings and paintings you will be able to see the kind, funny, humble and generous man that was Vance Gerry.

Archive of California RE: Vance Gerry)
The collection of Vance Gerry's Weather Bird Press jobs primarily consists of illustrations, layout sketches, galley, page, and signature proofs, dummies, correspondence, ephemera, pochoir samples, and stencils. It was given to the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library in 1988 and 1992. The collection is contained in eight boxes. Oversized papers are stored in a map drawer under the title of Weather Bird Press.
