    HOWARD CRUSE ORIGINAL ART: Page 119 of Stuck Rubber Baby

    Medium: India Ink applied with a Rapidograph on 2-ply Strathmore plate-surface bristol board; some brushwork added for natural texture and hair. Shaded with intricate crosshatching.

    Dimensions: 17-3/4"x23" (Original art is 250% of the image size in the American edition)

    Condition: Excellent, with following caveats: The are two small patches correcting lettering errors and another larger one reworking a portion of the leafy background at the bottom of the page. The latter is
    trimmed so that its edges glide almost invisibly along surrounding ink lines. A small swatch of white guauche has been applied in an open white area to cover a paper-surface abrasion. All patches are cleanly trimmed and executed on 1-ply Strathmore of the same coloration as the base art, and so are barely discernible.

    Provenance: The original art will be shipped directly from the artist.

    Comments by the artist: This scene depicts our protagonists sole venture into heterosexual lovemaking, as soulful conversation in the wake of tragedy draws Toland and Ginger into unlikely passion. The page's text contains the book's one explicit key to the significance of Its title, which some readers find mystifying. (But you have to pay close attention!)
