ORIGINAL PENCIL DRAWING - On Christmas Morning
‘There was once a velveteen rabbit, and in the beginning he was really splendid…. On Christmas morning, when he sat wedged in the top of the Boy’s stocking, with a sprig of holly between his paws, the effect was charming.’
Drawing for p6-7 of THE VELVETEEN RABBIT. This is a unique, one-off piece of work – a preparation study for the published book. As a working rough, it’s authentically tatty, marked by rubbings-out and additional pencil marks. NB – it is not a pristine drawing.
