    Description

    George Herriman archy does his part Illustration Original Art (Doubleday, Doran, and Co., 1935). "...and the kings of Babylon ... are covered in fleas." Herriman's brilliance ranges far beyond his most famous feature, the surreal and poetic Krazy Kat. This gem comes from the third anthology of Don Marquis' New York newspaper columns about a philosophical cockroach -- the text comes from a roach-poem called "Prophecies." The classic Herriman style is irresistible in its detailed density of composition. Ink over graphite on 6" x 9" Bristol board. There is a paper-clip indentation in the top margin, and minor staining/scuffing, and overall age-toning. Very Good condition.
