    Description

    Fontaine Fox Toonerville Folks Character Drawings and Illustrated Letter Original Art dated 3-5-62 Group of 7 (1962). The Toonerville gang is all here, in this lovely stack of lively, spontaneous drawings from Fox, using hotel stationery. The crowning touch is a heartfelt note to a fan, who had requested an original drawing. The fan was famous in his own right: Richmond, Va., photographer Albert C. Wilkerson, known for his portraits of such prominent figures as Bing Crosby, Hedy Lamarr, and Boris Karloff. The individual sheets picture such Toonerville characters as the Skipper and his Trolley, Tomboy Taylor, the Terrible-Tempered Mr. Bang, Mickey McGuire, Highbrow Henderson, and Stinky Davis. Another drawing of Highbrow Henderson graces the note itself. Ink over graphite on rag-bond paper. Image area, 8.5" x 11". The pages show horizontal creasing and light toning, with two impressions of paper-clip rust on the upper sheet. Excellent condition. From A Collection of Great Cartoonists and Illustrators.
