    WILL EISNER. "Borrowed Time" (8 pieces) from City People Notebook (1989).

    Lot of eight: a complete 4-page inked story, plus four corresponding pencil layouts. The story "Information/Flow" appears on pages 33-36 of the Kitchen Sink Press edition of City People Notebook, or pages 29-32 in the new Norton edition.

    Medium/Size/Condition. The preliminary pages are drawn in blue and black pencil on 8.5 x 11 inch paper. The inked pages are drawn in brush, pen and ink on a lightweight Bristol board measuring 11 inches wide by 14 inches high. The pencil layouts are quite close to the finished pages in most respects, but there are two interesting changes. The very first and last panels reverse direction, and the Caucasian salesman in the roughs becomes an African-American in the final version. All eight originals are in excellent condition. They are mounted together in pairs with archival tape on four textured mat boards measuring 16 x 23 inches -- all you have to add is the frame and glass (though a double-aperture mat is also recommended).
