Now in My Day…
A sentimental poem about old college days at The Ohio State
University. Cartoonist Milton Caniff wrote this during the depression while
he was doing the Terry and the Pirates strip. By the time he did the illustrations
for the poem, he was writing and drawing Steve Canyon. He was delighted
with the idea of doing a miniature book, and was very pleased with the
fact that we use archival paper. After all, most of his life’s work was
on newspaper print. Unfortunately, he did not live to see the book completed,
but enthusiastically told a friend about it just three days before he died.
Bound in scarlet book cloth, stamped with his signature on the cover. Grey
end sheets. 15/16" tall, 48 pages. $28.00.
