    Description

    George Herriman Archy Does His Part Interior Illustration Original Art (Doubleday Publ., 1935). Herriman's body of work ranges far beyond his most famous feature, the surreal and poetic Krazy Kat. This understated job of culture-clash satire comments emphatically upon the multi-ethnic nature of Los Angeles. It accompanied one of Archy's poems, titled "Hold Everything". The classic Herriman style is irresistible in its detailed density of composition. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 6" x 9". Upper marginal staining/scuffing, overall age-toning. Very Good condition.
