    Description

    Robert Crumb - Original Cover Art for Arcade #23 (No Publisher, 1962). Arcade was a series of sketches drawn in a note book that Crumb did as a young artist. He would often create a full-color cover and glue it to the cover of the composition book. This entertaining bit of Crumb history is a drawing of Mae West and W. C. Fields as they appeared in the film, "My Little Chickadee". These two well-known motion picture stars appear quite frequently in Crumb's sketchbooks and doodles. This art is rendered in ink and crayon, and measures 7.75" x 8.5". The work is bright and clear, with several small tears at the left edge, and some small creases in the center. The interior front cover is covered with Crumb sketches in blue pen.
