Original photo proofs of Berta and Elmer Hader's 1949 LITTLE APPALOOSA, the story of a boy and his spotted pony – evidence of the pre-production process for a mid-century picture book.
Very good plus.
Illustration Photo Proofs for LITTLE APPALOOSA
These photo proofs, likely printed from offset negatives, focus on the art: all of them lack narrative text, but some include notes and small changes made in the negatives. LITTLE APPALOOSA is one of the Haders' scarcer titles, so this evidence of its production process is a wonderful survival.
