The Valley, a portfolio consisting of sixteen etchings by Haring, was created upon the novel 'The Western Lands' by William S. Burroughs. In April of 1989, Haring drew the images for the portfolio onto copper plates in his New York studio, accompanying Burroughs' text. Unfortunately, this was the last collaboration the two did, as Haring died of AIDS in February of 1990, the same time the portfolio was published.
