Jumbo - Largest in the World!

Unproduced book

The preliminary artwork had been finished for a book commemorating the life, and untimely death, of P.T. Barnum's Jumbo the Elephant when funding was revoked. The final piece would have been an 18 x 20" hard bound book featuring black and white lino cuts that told the story of Jumbo's life in the circus and death in my hometown of St. Thomas, Ontario - a story with which all St. Thomas kids are intimately familiar.
