Arty-Fact: I Like Them, Sam-I-Am was adapted posthumously from the original preproduction drawing for the 1960 book, Green Eggs and Ham.

As an artistic and literary perfectionist, Theodor Seuss Geisel worked and reworked his writing and illustrations, often up to the moment the books went to press. A number of the preserved artworks found within the Dr. Seuss archives reveal glimpses of this process. I like them, Sam-I-am shows Theodor changing the page numbers at the top from 56–57 to 58–59. This handwritten clue tells us that in the late stages of completion, he reworked and included an additional two-page spread somewhere within Green Eggs and Ham. Just where is anybody’s guess.

Details were important to Dr. Seuss, especially when it came to his colour notations, which often expanded into full-blown colour charts. The notation “white bone” may seem inconsequential, but artistically it’s the detail that gives a visual pop to the most famous ham in literary history.
