Scope and Content

Finished artwork for 'Tim in Danger' comprising the cover design, 11 colour spreads and 12 black and white spreads. This artwork does not constitute a complete suite of artwork for the book, as two colour spreads are missing. These spreads were lost prior to donation, and are represented here with proof pages which were used in place of the missing spreads when the book was last printed. Printed text has been pasted into position on each spread, and in many cases a fresh copy of each block of text is taped over the top of an older copy. It is not clear why the fresh text has been pasted onto the original text, but it is probable that it was done for the reprinting of the book.

All of the spreads were window mounted after deposit by a paper conservator, as part of the conservation process.
