R. Crumb Coffe Table Art Book
[9780316025416]
$19.79

THE R. CRUMB COFFEE TABLE ART BOOK.

by R. Crumb.

The bookish, sexually obsessed cartoonist Robert Crumb spills all in the pages of this retrospective volume of his work. His story, told through text and comics in The R. Crumb Coffee Table Art Book, moves from his repressed 50s childhood to the fame he enjoyed after founding the magazines Zap (in the 60s) and Weirdo (in the 80s). From his stoner epiphanies to his blistering self-critiques, Crumbs work is one long reaction to his maladjusted youth (grimly depicted in the 1995 documentary Crumb). His wimpy apologies for his racist and sexist caricatures dont make them any more palatable, but as an uncensored look at an id on the loose, this is a riveting collection. - Entertainment Weekly.

OVERVIEW: Robert Crumb, world-famous illustrator and definite pervert, got his start in the underground comics scene of the late 1960s and early 1970s. The R. Crumb Coffee Table Art Book is a collection of his best work from the last 50 years (its got kids stuff, too, which is pretty fascinating). The volume is a welcome reminder that, screwed up as Crumb may be, hes also a tremendously talented, utterly original artist. He artistically embodies a certain segment of the 60s, and as that fades even further into history, Crumbs material becomes more important. Is The R. Crumb Coffee Table Art Book funny? Yes, certainly, in a coarse, Rabelaisian way; youll either find it a hoot, or horribly racist and sexist. And its not for the kiddies, obviously. But R. Crumb is so well known by now, that you probably know which group you fall into, the lovers or the haters. The lovers will find this book a wonderful treat.
