EXTREMELY RARE LITHOGRAPH SIGNED BY ILLUSTRATOR GARTH WILLIAMS OF THE COVER ART FOR E.B. WHITE’S CLASSIC STUART LITTLE. WITH HAND-COLORING BY WILLIAMS.
Pulled by hand from the original pen and ink drawing by Garth Williams. Marked “Bon à Tirer” (“ready for press”) in pencil by the printer. This image was acquired directly from the lithographer; Williams added the delicate gray hand-coloring in this image as a guide for the lithographer to follow in coloring the full edition.
Williams died in 1996 just after this “ready for press” lithograph was printed; therefore no copies of the final printing of approximately 300 were signed.
11.25 x 15 inches. Fine condition.
A UNIQUE EXAMPLE OF ONE OF GARTH WILLIAMS’S MOST DESIRABLE IMAGES.
Price: $4,900 .
