- Full Description
Craig Yoe's passion for the subject and attention to detail result in a highly enjoyable book--a work of art unto itself, here collecting some impossibly rare art by Herriman, much of it having never been printed before anywhere. This isn't just original artwork for Krazy Kat strips. It has page after page of one-of-a-kind, beautifully hand-colored pieces that Herriman did for friends, including birthday cards, framed artworks, and illustrated thank-you's. Plus historic photos, posters, book covers and memorabilia.
There are also enlightening essays by writers including Bill Watterson, Gilbert Seldes, Tad Dorgan, e. e. cummings, and Yoe himself. Each of them gives a personal perspective on Herriman's work that puts the art into context. Plenty to read as well as look at.
This was published under the Abrams Comicarts imprint, a new line dedicated to the best in cartooning and comics from one of the most prestigious art book publishers today. It's a first class production from first page to last, with outstanding reproduction and design.
"This book is a treasure trove of classic kat art and krazy curiosities. Like a brick out of nowhere, you'll be knocked out by its many surprises." --Patrick McDonnell, creator of Mutts
