As Crumb himself states in his forward, the originals of many of these grease stained, food splattered drawings have sold in galleries for thousands of dollars. Who would've thunk it?
Allow this collection to inspire you and your friends, loved ones and relatvies to make more constructive use of that time between ordering and eating!
Here's what the publisher has to say about it:
This is the third book in successful series of occasional sketches by the grandfather of American alternative comix. These sketches reveal another side-- a contemplative side-- to the controversial artist, renowned for his taboo-breaking satires of American society. With his intricate cross-hatching and observant line, the drawings here show Crumb as an imaginative chronicler of everyday life.
"Called "the Brueghel of the last half of the 20th century" by no less a skeptic than establishment art critic Robert Hughes, cartoonist R. Crumb has produced some of the smuttiest yet piercingly affecting and quintessentially American art since the 1960s." --Publishers Weekly
"One of the most prolific artists of his time" --Library Journal
