Rendered in India ink on stiff drawing paper, measuring approximately 12 x 14". It is by well-known caricaturist Taylor Jones--signed by him and dated 1977. Taylor drew caricatures for the Los Angeles Times Syndicate before joining Tribune Media Services. Among his clients are The Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Seattle Times and many other dailies; he has been a frequent contributor to The New Republic and U.S. News & World Report. The note, in Capote's hand, is on a single sheet measuring approximately 4 x 6". The words go well with the haughty/hostile image: "Dear Sir -- I do not have time to answer your request -- T. Capote." Fine.
