    Description

    George Herriman archy and mehitabel Interior Illustration Original Art (Doubleday, 1927) "all a spook has to do is stick around." From the Archy poem "i know a ghost." Creator and writer Don Marquis could not have picked a better artist for this series of newspaper features-turned-collected-book than George Herriman (creator of Krazy Kat). Herriman infused every drawing with his own wacky and wonky surreal sense of humor. Rendered in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 5.75" x 5.25". Signed "Herriman" just below the image. The lightly toned board has foxing, glue residue down the right margin, and minor smudging. In Very Good condition.
