Scope and Content

Original artwork for a cut-out peep-show entitled 'Smith at the Adam and Eve Gardens'. The peep-show accompanied a short story by Leon Garfield entitled 'Smith Chapter 3 3/4', and was published in the 'Puffin Annual No. 2' in 1975. The file includes hand-lettered instructions on how to construct the peep-show, and artwork for all the pieces required to construct it.

The artwork was originally annotated with sequential numbers, but many of these numbers have been crossed out and the sequence itself is somewhat confusing. The artwork has been arranged here in what seems the most logical sequence.
