R. CRUMB SHORT HISTORY OF AMERICA POSTER

Availability: In stock

$30.00
Warehouse find. From 1981. Highly Recommended. By Robert Crumb. Robert Crumb is an artist and illustrator recognized for the distinctive style of his drawings and his critical, satirical, subversive view of the American mainstream. While he is perhaps best known for his Keep on Truckin’ and Fritz the Cat cartoons, his "Short History of America" series is an urbanist classic.  Arguably his most timeless image, this series shows the gradual metamorphosis of a single plot of land from virgin wilderness to urban decay in 12 panels. It first appeared in black & white in 1979 in the ecological magazine Co-Evolutionary Quarterly and in Snoid Comics. It was rearranged and colored by Peter Poplaski in 1981 and quickly became Kitchen Sink Press’ best-selling poster. These posters have been stored rolled which did not crease the poster, but it will not lay flat on its own. If framed, this will not be noticed. The edges have some wear and discoloration.

Note: This is an out of print, used and/or rare item. It is not as-new, in "mint" condition. These posters have been stored rolled for many years. Thankfully the rolling did not crease the poster, but it will not lay flat on its own, and has waves when placed flat. If framed, this will not be noticed. The edges have some wear and discoloration.
