the most famous spider web in literature. While a loose, organic design, it is actually extremely difficult and painstaking to draw a spider's web in proper proportion but Williams's became an icon. His most famous work appeared in 1952 and has since remained a bestselling title, with movies and cartoon versions as well. The marginal indications in blue pen state: "Print in reverse, on color -- white web with dew drops." Crop marks, measurements, and the book's gutter fold area are also indicated in the bottom margin.
