    George Herriman archy does his part Interior Illustration Original Art (Doubleday Publ., 1935). "And the Cops - Watching All the Time." Pete the Pup has his own poem, courtesy of Archy the cockroach. It's titled "pete petitions", and this piece of art accompanied it in this 1935 release. Archy's poems and the book titles have no capitalization as he is but a cockroach and has to hop from key-to-key to type. So he cannot use the Shift Key. Poor Archy. The art, by famed creator of Krazy Kat George Herriman, was rendered in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 5.75" x 8.25". Signed with an "H." on the tree (as if carved there). The lightly toned board has some glue residue on the top corners, and minor stains in the lower left. In Very Good condition.
