FUNGUS THE BOGEYMAN. The Author's Original Hand Corrected Maquette.

The author's unique original mock-up / maquette of the first edition, first printing. Photocopies of the early draft original artwork, applied to boards with glue and staples with the author's autograph corrections, deletions, headings, replacement text and layout changes in pencil and black ink throughout. Title page in manuscript. Together with a first edition, first printing of the published work.

A fascinating insight into the author's working process. The early draft artwork used in the maquette differs significantly in some areas to that used in the final publication. Several pages include the first author's manuscript text and dialogue additions for the first time. Some of the text included in the early draft artwork is removed or replaced by hand in this maquette. Nearly all of the additions, corrections and emendations applied by the author are carried through to the first edition. For all intents and purposes this can be considered the author's working manuscript. Unique as such. Provenance: Raymond Briggs; Naomi Lewis (poet, reviewer, critic and author of children's books).
