Proscenium overlay

Proscenium overlay

In a clever innovation that saved time, and also turned her working drawings into a kind of toy, Burton drew a version of the proscenium arch and then cut out the center so that she could overlay the stage design on each page she was working on. 

The stage setting appeared throughout the book and since Burton made so many versions of each page it was easier to only paint the proscenium arch once.
