    Description

    William Donahey The Teenie Weenies Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 12-29-68 (News Syndicate Co., 1968). The Teenie Weenies dates from 1912, originally conceived as a homage to Palmer Cox's The Brownies. Donahey would continue the strip for nearly 60 years -- combining a talent for wild-animal drawings with an affinity for cartooning. Each installment is distinguished by one large illustration (part-realistic, part-cartoon), to be accompanied by a storybook-style narrative text. A recurring feature is an inset of a featured character, designed like a paper doll. This gem is fashioned from ink over graphite with an image area of 13.25" x 8". Faint toning, with marginal notations. Excellent condition. From the Ray Edw Collection.
