Crumbling Paper: Gluyas Williams Circa 1927 Strip #1

My friend Zander Cannon recently gave me a stack of wonderful old strips by Gluyas Williams that his Grandmother had clipped in 1927. Williams reminds me of Jules Feiffer in both his spare compostions and his keen observation of human foibles… I wonder if he was an influence on Feiffer? Two sites on the web do a lovely job of highlighting the work of Williams: the recently launched, and, of course, the amazing Barnacle Press. I’m going to be reprinting the strips that I have here over the next months. Here’s the first one… click on the image to see the full strip.
