    Description

    George Herriman archy's life of mehitabel Illustration Original Art (Doubleday, Doran, and Co., 1933). "may emulate the tumble-bug" This illustration accompanied the poem "as it looks to archy". Archy, of course, is the cockroach with a reincarnated soul of a poet, who types his missives on typewriter in the middle of the night by jumping violently from key to key (hence the absence of Capital letters...he can't hold the Shift Key down at the same time). This poem points out many ways that the insect world is way ahead of the human world. Produced in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 6.75" x 10". There is a vintage paste-up label on the top from a previous vender. Toned and in Very Good condition.
