Medium/Size/Condition. The preliminary page is drawn in blue and black
pencil on 8.5 x 11 inch paper. The inked page is drawn in brush,
pen and ink on a lightweight Bristol board measuring 11 inches
wide by 14 inches high. A cabdriver and a businessman passenger
give each other "inside tips" in this solo page. The
essential layouts are similar, but note that Eisner changes the
passenger's line of business and the cab driver remains in his
taxi in the inked version. Both originals are in excellent condition.
They are mounted together with archival tape on a textured tan
mat board measuring 16 x 23 inches -- all you have to add is
the frame and glass (though a double-aperture mat is also recommended).
Price: $1,750 for the lot of 2 pieces, mounted.
