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. The stand-alone page depicts a businessman
unsuccessfully trying to carry on an anonymous affair. Comparing
the pencil version with the final drawing, one can see that Eisner
edited the opening text, and the bottom two panels, distinct
in the pencil, essentially blur together in the final. Both originals
are in excellent condition and are mounted together with archival
tape on textured tan mat board measuring 16 x 23 inches -- all
you have to add is the frame and glass (a double-aperture mat
is also recommended).
Price: $1,750 for the lot of 2 pieces, matted.
