By R. Crumb
1322 pages; hard cover; partial color
This six-book boxed set is the first collection of Robert Crumb sketches to be printed from the original art since the hard-bound, slipcased, seven volume series issued by the German publisher Zweitausendeins between 1981 and 1997. This best-of edition has been personally edited by the notoriously picky artist to include only what he considers his finest work, including hundreds of late period drawings not published in previous sketchbook collections. This collection includes over 600 unseen drawings created between 1996 and 2011, making this a must-have collectible for every Crumb fan. Each set of this 1,000-copy limited edition also includes a signed color art print of a Crumb original.
