    Robert Crumb R. Crumb's Puppets Mr. Natural and Angelfood Illustrations Original Art and Printed Examples Group (1970/92). Cut-out puppet images of Mr. Natural and Angelfood McSpade originally appeared in Bijou Funnies #5 (1970). In 1992, French publisher Editions Cornelius produced full-color packaged puppets of each character, printed on punch-out boards. Here is the original hand-cut artwork for each character, in four pieces for each (with separate arms and legs). The art is in ink on thin board; image size for Mr. Natural's body is approximately 8" x 8", while Angelfood's body measures 5" x 9.5". The arms and legs (feet only for Mr. Natural) range from 4.5" x 3.5" up to 4" x 7.5". The original art had been assembled at one time and shows minor handling wear with small holes; otherwise, the condition is Excellent. Two sets of each packaged puppet are also included. Have fun, kids! From the Eric Sack Collection.
