    Description

    Bernie Wrightson Berni Wrightson A Look Back Cover Pencil Preliminary Original Art (Land of Enchantment, c. 1978). This panoramic pencil preliminary was created for one of the best, if not "the" best and most lavish comic art monographs ever done. This sensitively rendered pencil on vellum drawing, done during a peak period in the artist's career, is certain to make a prized showpiece for any Wrightson, fan. The legend at the upper left reads, "Like one, who, on a lonely road, Doth walk in fear and dread, And, having once turned 'round, walks on, And turns no more his head; Because he knows a frightful fiend Doth close behind him tread." This electrifying piece has an overall size of 13.5" x 22". There are two fold marks from where the piece was once folded, but it has since been flattened out and drymounted to a piece of backing board; otherwise, the art is in Very Good condition.
