I bought these at a flea market about a decade ago. They caught my eye and upon closer inspection I noticed the distinctive signature of Jim Roslof. smaller print reads  ___ntercraft Industries Corporation Chicago IL 60614. There is printing on the back panel and then it looks to be on the back of the front glass panel for a 3-D effect.  Figured I'd share...

Hi Joe, thanks for posting. Yes, Jim worked for Intercraft Industries which was based out of Chicago and California. He had mentioned to me that they were a frame making and glass screening industrial plant and that he had done hundreds of printed images and tons of conceptual work for them in the early 70's through around 1980 before he went to work with TSR. This might have come from a series of what he had described to me as "mirrorer graphics" that they produced, but I'm not sure.

edit: actually I think as I remember now, the "mirrored graphics" work he talked about was more sci-fi related 'ultra 70's stuff', as he would say.
