    Description

    George Herriman archy does his part Interior Illustration Original Art (Doubleday, 1935). "...and the ... result -- was Hamlet." Herriman's brilliance ranges far beyond his most famous feature, the surreal and poetic Krazy Kat. This gem comes from a collection of Don Marquis' newspaper columns about a philosophical cockroach -- the caption comes from a roach-poem "archy on the theater". The classic Herriman style is irresistible in its detailed density of composition. Ink over graphite on Bristol board, with paper-clip indentations. Image area, 6" x 9". Upper marginal staining/scuffing, overall age-toning, and scattered un-erased pencil lines. Very Good condition.
