A rare Wonder Woman costume planning sketch with back-and-forth notes by artist Harry G. Peter and creator William Moulton Marston (drawn and written a few months before WW's 1941 debut) was recently sold at auction at Heritage Auction Gallery.
The notes read:
'Dear Dr. Marston, I slapped these two out in a hurry. The eagle is tough to handle as when in perspective or in profile he doesn't show up clearly — The shoes look like a stenographer's. I think the idea might be incorporated as a sort of Roman contraption. Peter
Dear Pete - I think the gal with hand up is very cute. I like her skirt, legs, hair. Bracelets okay + boots. These probably will work out + see other suggestions enclosed. No on these + stripes - red + white. With eagle's wings above or below breasts as per-enclosed? Leave it to you. Don't we have to put a red stripe around her waist as belt? I thought Gaines wanted it — don't remember. Circlet will have to go higher — more like crown — see suggestions enclosed. See you Wednesday morning — WMM'
