    Tom Wood Good Housekeeping April 1940 "Billposters" Illustration Donald Duck Original Art (Good Housekeeping, 1940). Tom Wood's lovely watercolors illustrate this poetic adaptation of the Disney short Billposters for the April issue of GH. The short was released on 5/17/1940. Sadly, Tom Wood would pass away this same year. Goofy was left out of this adaption as they only had one page to work with. The adaptation can be seen on page 234 of the 2005 Gemstone Publishing book Walt Disney's Mickey and the Gang. The five panels produced for this Disney page have a combined image area of 18" x 21" (measuring approximately 8.5" x 6.5" each). They are nicely matted and glass front framed to 24" x 27". Some production tape was used at the time of creation to mask off the corners of the panels and some is visible in the apertures, otherwise in Fine condition.
