    �Skeleton Front� from Will Eisner�s Expressive Anatomy (2004-2007*), page 2 (and xii) of published book. Lot of 2.

    Will Eisner felt that a strong grasp of skeletal anatomy was an essential cornerstone for expressive anatomy, so his book begins with this wonderfully rendered skeleton. In the published book (W. W. Norton, 2008) the hand-lettering is replaced by mechanical fonts, as Poplaski�s note at the bottom of page 6 [sic] instructs. A comparison of the sharply detailed original with the published version shows that considerable subtlety was lost in the reproduction.

    Brush, pen and ink with some white-out on 8.5 x 11 inch vellum mounted on 8.5 x 11 5/8 white paper whose reverse is a photocopy of the original when at an earlier stage. The headline is on a separate small sheet of paper clear taped to the vellum. 2nd piece, on 8.5 x 11 sheet, is Will Eisner�s guide with glued photocopy, white-out, blue pencil layout and his original hand lettering. $375
