    Description

    Big Little Book "Dick Tracy and the Tiger Lilly Gang" Cover Original Art (Whitman, 1949). Dapper detective Dick Tracy and sidekick Junior track down their prey in this intensely colorful cover to Big Little Book #1460. If you're a fan of Chester Gould's famous creation, you really owe it to yourself to check this beautifully airbrushed gouache and ink painting. The image area is 14.75" x 15.5", and is double-matted and framed to an overall size of 20.25" x 20.25". There are a few small spots on the art where water has come in contact, causing some light running of colors, but this is a very minor distraction to a vibrant, eye-popping piece; otherwise, the art is in Excellent condition. A copy of the Big Little Book is included.
