Inspector Mouse Signed by Ralph Steadman

Inspector Mouse by author Bernard Stone and illustrator Ralph Steadman was published in 1980. It is the sequel to Emergency Mouse of 1978. Whether Ralph Steadman made a drawing like the one here only once or a thousand times, one has to be impressed by the sheer ingenuity involved in transforming the published magnifying glass into a likeness of the jittery mouse.

Bernard Stone, Inspector Mouse, 1980

Inscribed with a drawing of the mouse over the published magnifying glass "For Stephen Parr, Ralph Steadman 2006."

Note:  "A Retrospective:  Ralph Steadman" is now showing in  New York at the Society of Illustrators. If it were up to me, it would be called "Ralph Steadman:  A Retrospective." Otherwise, I'm pretty good with it.

Books signed, dated, inscribed, drawn upon, and otherwise mutilated by Ralph Steadman can be scanned, photographed, commented on, and otherwise documented by their owners for consideration by, inclusion in, or possible rejection from this blog. Steadman collectors please take note.
