    Vittorio Giardino L'Espresso Safari Planche 3 (Editoriale L'Espresso, 1987). En 1987, Giardino réalise Safari pour L'Espresso. Le célèbre hebdomadaire italien oblige néanmoins à réduire la pagination prévue par l'auteur. Quand le récit parait dans l'album Vacances fatales de NBM, il passera de 5 à 8 planches. Les deux planches originales présentées ici sont devenues trois dans l'album. Les pages de l'album sont réalisées via un montage des cases de L'Espresso avec des nouvelles. Il n'y a donc pas d'originaux pour ces pages de l'album ! Chaque planche (22,5 x 30 cm) est réalisée à l'encre de Chine et à l'aquarelle. Etat Parfait.

    Vittorio Giardino L'Espresso "Safari" aka "Deadly Dalliance" Page 3 Original Art (Editoriale L'Espresso, 1987). In 1987 Giardino created "Safari" for L'Espresso. The famous Italian weekly, however, insisted that the author reduce the number of pages he had planned. But when the story appeared in the graphic novel "Deadly Dalliance" from NBM, Giardino was able to expand it from 5 to 8 pages. The two original boards presented in this catalog (in two separate lots) became three in the book. The pages of the album were made by combining the panels from L'Espresso with new ones. So there are no originals for those pages of the album! The board measures 8.75" x 11.75", and the piece is rendered in India ink and watercolor. Excellent condition.
