Hand-drawn animation strip book. Graphite with typed title label to the front cover. Eleven stapled leaves with a drawing to the recto of each. Very good condition with two old staple holes and associated minor rust-marking to the margin of the upper left corner, an old punch hole to the lower left corner, and minor wear to the extremities. The drawings remain clean and bright.
A highly accomplished series of drawings, similar to the style of Disney, from the early days of British animation. Produced by a professional illustrator, they humorously depict the mishaps of a dog, reminiscent of Pluto, following his encounter with a bee. A complete story in itself, the characterful drawings wonderfully convey the sense of movement of the finished cartoon.
