Edition de Luxe, number 71 of 350 copies signed by the artist

in 1971, while a student at the College of Marin, Williams was cast as Malvolio in the theater department's production of Twelfth Night. At the time, a local newspaper reviewed it critically, until it touched upon Williams' performance: "All was not lost, however, thanks to a marvellous portrayal by Williams as Malvolio.  His antics made a the rather longish evening worthwhile.  Had his characterization not worked, the production may well have fallen on its Shakespearean face."
