Two-page Spread

Frank and I wanted the story of the Carter Family to really feel like it was set in times when the Carters lived.  For us, the best way to do this was to evoke old newspaper comics of the time.  A favorite of ours is Frank King's "Gasoline Alley" which, besides being beautifully drawn, sometimes featured ingenius Sunday pages where the panels connect up to form a landscape.  These two pages are our homage to those strips; and provide a quiet moment between A.P. and his daughter.
