Happy Birthday Shel Silverstein - Original Draft of A Light in the Attic

A Light in the Attic Original Draft Manuscript Handwritten and Illustrated by Shel Silverstein
Today marks the birthday of Shel Silverstein (1930 - 1999), the remarkable poet, singer-songwriter, cartoonist, and author. Our Collector's Treasure of the Day is his original handwritten and illustrated draft of one of his most famous poems, “A Light in the Attic.” In addition to various changes and corrections, Silverstein added a few lines to the left of the poem, as well as a cryptic series of capital letters down the left side. This one-of-a-kind manuscript lends tremendous insight into his process as an artist and poet, a truly remarkable piece. Authenticity guaranteed for life by Collector's Shangri-La plus third party COA.
