    Description

    Friendly Ghost Casper: Tales of Wonder Paperback Book Cover Production Art Group (Tempo Books, 1974). Colorful cover illustration featuring Casper, Wendy the Good Little Witch, Hot Stuff, and a "Cheshire Cat" that looks closely related to Harvey's own Katnip, all acting out a scene from Alice in Wonderland. The line art illustration itself is a sharp paper photocopy, but this is the actual hand-colored production art, using watercolors with blue pencil highlights, that was used in the printing of the book. The image area measures approximately 9" x 13", taped to a backing board measuring 13" x 16". It's in Very Good condition. Also included is a second, black and white copy (with some touch-ups in ink and whiteout), with added "book page" lines, for use in advertising; this is a cropped version printed slightly larger than the colored version, with an image area of 7" x 11", mounted to 11" x 15" board. It too is in Very Good condition, with rubber cement stains starting to show through the paper.
