    Vaughn Bode - Alphabet Illustration Group Original Art (No Publisher, 1965). A set of five color alphabet drawings, done possibly as a college project (Vaughn would have been 23 or 24 at the time). The illustrations include the letters "F", "G", "J", "P", and "R", all done with strange little cartoons. All are signed on the front as "Von"; on the back, each is listed with the caption "Vaughn Bode, Sec. No. One, 3/65" Each drawing is done on a piece of 10.5" x 12.25" illustration board which was then attached to a mat with masking tape. On two of the drawings, the boards have come loose from the mat. All the drawings have been made in ink and watercolors; all pieces are in Excellent condition. These are rare early examples of art from one of the Underground's favorite creators, one whose time was tragically cut short.
