    Description

    Phoebe Gloeckner A Child's Life and Other Stories Splash Page Original Art (North Atlantic Books, 1998). Underground artist Gloeckner's confrontational approach to autobiographical comics makes for a wealth of enlightening (if sometimes disturbing) reading -- tales of sexual victimization, for the most part. Here is one of the tamer pages from her first full-length book, depicting the title character in the act of reading a novel that is decidedly not kid-stuff. The art (realistic, with slight exaggerations) contains innumerable fine environmental details. Ink over graphite on illustration board, with painted white highlights. Image area, 9.5" x 12". Signed at lower left. Light toning. Marginal notations. One small spot of chipped paint in the upper center of the title logo. Excellent condition.
