    Robert Crumb "Floating on a Cloud" Two-Sided Sketchbook Page Original Art (c. 1962). Robert Crumb could never sit still when there was a pencil and pad of paper around. Here's a page from one of his many composition books, filled with whimsical sketches including a man floating in a cloud, a drawing of sister Sandra, noting her obsession with the music of Rogers and Hammerstein, and lots of strange figures on both sides of the page. An old steamboat, the "Saint Louis Belle" is seen on the reverse, along with a "Fritz"-like cat and bird in period costumes. The page measures 6.75" x 8.5", and other than the ragged edge where the page was torn out, it's in Excellent condition.
