E. J. Pace Poster from 1920's

1920's: This striking pen and ink poster was created by Dr. E. J. Pace (born 1880), a Christian artist of many such illustrations. He and his wife Cornelia were missionaries to the Philippines in the early 1900's. He later became very well known for his work, which is still considered very collectible today in the 21st century. This particular poster is part of my Wonders of the Bible collection. It contains two Bible verses: (1) "Look unto Me, and be ye saves, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else." from Isaiah 45:22; and (2) "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." from Acts 4:12. This poster is not as common as many of his others. Remember, even a simple pen was considered a "high-tech" instrument at one point in time. Not to mention the technology needed to put illustrations to print for mass reproduction. Then there is the actual physics behind the mechanics of a printing press. We take these things for granted today, but Jesus Christ has always called men and women of science and technology -- and will continue to call men and women of science and technology -- until his return.
