Page 59 – Plate VIII – The End (Artists & Illustrators)

by Danny Garrett
Austin, Texas

As it was in the beginning, so it is at the end.

The last plate is mostly identical to the first one. Bordered by the thin red line and turquoise band that form the graphic continuity throughout the book, we have the climbing vines of morning-glories that bound the final statement. Like in so many of her uncle’s movies, Letitia lays out the very last thing that you read: The End.

And what illuminates the last thing said?

The words: The End

The words: The End

A sprig of morning-glory.

About Danny Garrett

Danny Garrett, Digital Restoration Artist for "Princess April Morning-Glory" Danny Garrett is best known for his contributions to music ephemera of Austin, Texas, especially in its heady early days in the 1970s. His pen & ink poster portraiture advertising the latest shows were a must-have addition to any blues-lover who saw such greats as Muddy Waters, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Guy, and so many more at the legendary Antones nightclub.As computers came of age, Danny adapted and began working for digital game companies, later transitioning to teaching both traditional and digital art. While holding a tenured position at Auckland University of Technology in the Graphic Arts Dept., Danny developed digital techniques to restore Letitia’s artwork to its full glory, and render the previously unprintable pages, printable. Second only to Letitia, we would not finally be reading copies of Princess April Morning-Glory had Danny not graciously volunteered to take this project on.
