- Full Description
Hundreds of sketches from the master of underground comic art, including cover roughs for Zap, Motor City and Despair comics, the introduction of Aline, the first female Yetis, Flakey Foont and Mr. Natural, Honeybunch Kaminski, San Francisco drug culture and big buoyant butts, all wrapped up in a quality hard cover featuring front and back illustrations newly hand-colored by Crumb himself. This combines the two middle volumes from the second boxed set into one fat 444-page Crumb feast, at an irresistible price.
It’s the old story. When Taschen released the first limited edition of R. Crumb Sketchbooks: 1982–2011, fans drooled over the gorgeous packaging of this six-volume boxed set, the artist’s thoughtful editing, the hand-written introduction, marbleized page edges, and signed Crumb colored art print. Not all, however, could afford the steep price of $1000! This new series corrects that issue with affordable but still massive editions with fun illustrated bindings, color jackets, etc.
