Book-A-Day #166 (12/29): Chicken Fat by Will Elder

This is a sketchbook, gussied up a little bit with some captions and a bit of explanation, but it's basically a random walk through Elder's sketchbooks from the past fifty years or so.

It's short, and Elder doesn't seem to have kept (or, possibly, been allowed to reproduce) the sketchbooks that would be the most interesting -- from his EC work in the '50s and from Little Annie Fannie -- so this is mostly minor drawings. Budding art students will get the most out of this, but he did have an engaging style, no matter what he was drawing.
