About This Work

In this sketchbook, Mitchell appeared to work from both the front and back of the book and illustrations often reverse orientation. All pages above appear in the order and orientation they appear in the sketchbook from front to back. Additionally, this sketchbook previously contained loose insertions, which are now housed separately. Images show page spreads with insertions and after their removal, so some page spreads are represented twice.
