See Original Artwork For "The Little Prince" In All Its Ragged Glory

Lou Pizante

When Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince was still in its nascent form, he left the project with a friend before leaving New York City to rejoin the war effort. At that point, Saint-Exupéry was carrying around the book in a sad paper bag and the illustrations featured stains and even cigarette burns.

Now, an exhibition at The Morgan Library — The Little Prince: A New York Story, on display from January 24th through April 27th.

Thanks Keanna Sheu!
