LOIS NETTLETON’S SHEP ALBUM
One of the two copies Lois had of programs of Look, Charlie,
Shep’s theater piece staring himself, Lois, Shel Silverstein,
Herb Gardner and others. I bought the much cheaper one for sale. (It has a brown
stain on the cover, probably caused by being stored against newsprint.)
We all know that Shep appears as the motorcyclist riding up the K
and Shel is sitting atop the angled like of the K, right?
It’s said that good friend Shel, who drew the several-page program, worked very fast and sometimes forgot stuff. Here, it’s said, that having forgotten the A in Charlie, instead of redrawing the whole cover, he added, on the left, the A being moved to install in its intended place.
Lois had preserved letters and postcards she and Jean had sent each other from faraway places, as early as 1957. Here’s part of one I have from Lois to Jean.
