Some here might like this tour of Dita's home. She really likes Pin Up stuff more than I thought.

 

Also, does anyone know the artist of this illustration? The style is familiar, like I've seen it before. But I can't find it yet. I have a few more books to check.

Plus from the same video series on youtube, I spotted a piece of artwork that looks familiar but I can't remember this one either. From David Harbour's home tour. My first thought was that it's Superman or Green Lantern.

The art from that pic in David Harbour's home is the cover to Cap #321. I'd bet good money that it's not the real one.

Yeah, that's a Zeck. He's done a few recreations/reinterpretations of various covers over the years, this one included.

Vaguely McGinnis, but honestly everyone was drawing in that style in the mid to late 60s.  The Taschen books are thick with this stuff-

Amazing taste. I love it when collectors become hyper-focused. Thanks for posting.

I think that's a John Willie directly over her left arm in the freeze frame.  You don't see those every day.

Dita was sadly over dressed for my taste. Maximal decorating is one thing but for me minimalist clothing on Dita was the only reason to watch that entire video.

She is also a big vintage 40s car collector.

Seen her many times in person wearing next to nothing, Dita is sexy no matter what she wears. I saw a number of Olivias hanging in her house.

While she was getting this house remodeled, she used to live near me.  She generally shopped at Whole Foods dressed like a 1950s housewife with, uh, something extra.  Very friendly, nice person and, like most famous people, only about an inch and a half tall.

I guess they edited out her umbrella collection, as Dita always seemed to carry an umbrella to block the CA sun.

Small girls are easier to pick up.

The one in Harbour's house is most likely one of the prints of that cover that Mike Zeck used to sell at cons.  He made a print based off the original art.  He's down to his last few, but still selling them on his website (minimum $50 per order).  https://www.mikezeck.com/shop/captain-america-321-print

Didn’t know she was from Michigan. And she’s right about the Grand Hotel, which is on Mackinac Island. This is from a trip I made there 5 years ago  19A91CE1-A772-4AEA-9816-E5E8C10103A8.thumb.jpeg.9f83874aaf121d84226bb0a8bead968d.jpeg

Thank you. When she mentioned this I wondered what it looked like. Pretty cool.
