The Last of the Raskin Signatures

My tendency toward completism recently led me back to the Milwaukee Public Library to photograph the Ellen Raskin signatures I had missed during my earlier visit.

Because I wasn't familiar with her picture books, I'd spent all my time on those and hadn't looked at the novels. Here's the title page of The Mysterious Disappearance of Leon (I Mean Noel).

One of the end papers of Figgs & Phantoms is graced with a hand-drawn ampersand.

And a stopwatch for The Tattoed Potato and Other Clues.

It's interesting that the MPL doesn't seem to have a copy of the Newbery-winner The Westing Game in their collection.
