Read full description of the books The R. Crumb Coffee Table Art Book:R. Crumb's Zap Comix launched the underground comic book back in 1968, and his signature characters -- Keep on Truckin, Fritz the Cat, Mr. Natural -- went on to become instantly recognizable icons of the hippie era. His work is irreverent, hilarious, surreal, profane, highly sexual, frequently autobiographical -- and always beautifully rendered in the artist's trademark pen-and-ink style. Art critic Robert Hughes has called him "the Brueghel of the twentieth century". And an acclaimed 1994 documentary film, Crumb, captured the still-disquieting weirdness of this artist and his vision -- and testified to Crumb's enduring appeal.Now, for the first time, Crumb has collected the best of his work in a lavish hardcover volume. The R. Crumb Coffee Table Art Book showcases a generous sampling of favorite strips and characters -- Keep on Truckin', Fritz the Cat, Snoid, Devil Girl, and Mr. Natural, among others -- many printed in color for the first time. But the book also includes dozens of comic book covers and many never-before-published rarities, including pages from Crumb's sketchbook, preliminary doodles, juvenilia, and photographs. Interspersed throughout with Crumb's inimitable reflections on his life and art, The R. Crumb Coffee Table Art Book is the definitive look back at our strangest, most serious popular artist -- a book that everyone interested in American popular culture over the last half century will want to own.
