Condition Report

All the drawings are flat in their mounts and not laid down. The papers are slightly dirty and discoloured in each case but this is not distracting. There is a crease to the sheet of 'One of the Bionets' to the left of the head. 'Goliath' has a crease in the lower left corner.


FRAME

All the drawings are contained in simple black frames with a clean mount and under glass.
