ROBERT CRUMB: SKETCHBOOKS, 1964-1981. Dian Hanson. Benedikt Taschen Verlag GmbH, Cologne, 2014. Six volumes. 1344 pp. 27 x 20 cm. ISBN 9783836524438 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. See also companion title Robert Crumb: Sketchbooks, 1982-2011 (Worldwide 148859). Publisher_s description: This six-book boxed set is based on the original hard-bound, slip-cased, seven-volume series released by the German publisher Zweitausendeins between 1981 and 1997. Unlike the previous edition, which included every doodle ever made by the preeminent underground artist, our edition has been personally edited by the notoriously fastidious artist to include only what he considers his best work, reproduced directly from the original sketchbooks... Each book in the set contains 224 pages, for a total of 1,344 pages of prime Crumb from the artist_s most prolific, early period. The set includes a handwritten introduction, many pages of original color works, and 50 redrawn images distinctly different from the original works. Each set in this 1,000-copy limited edition also includes a signed, authenticated color art print of a collectible Crumb original. With Robert Crumb_s original art setting records at auction (the cover art for Mr. Natural #1 sold for $ 101,575 at Dallas-based Heritage Auction Galleries in 2007), this limited edition with signed print is sure to increase in value and be sought both as an investment by collectors and as a stunning addition to any Crumb fan_s library.
