The audience enters

An original illustration for the title page depicts the front of the theater with patrons purchasing tickets and waiting on line to enter. The large marquee proclaims the title “Life Story” in large letters with the subtitle up in lights. 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.
