The R. Crumb Handbook is a brand new take on the life, trials and ideas of one of the most influential cartoonists of the last 40 years. Wry, self-deprecating, and candid, this is an exceptionally revealing and unexpectedly moving visual biography. Crumb is thoughtful and enlightening, with insights into 20th century popular culture that are hilarious, challenging, and acidly satirical. He casts an unblinking eye onto the underbelly of modern life, an urban nightmare of human weakness, lust, terror and cruelty, all seen through the comic lens of his satire. Simultaneously, he weaves in the surreal narrative of his personal evolution from his tormented childhood in the 1940s through to his coming of age as an artist in the psychedelic revolution of the 1960s. With over 50 personal photographs, and 300 images taken from his sketchbooks and comic books, as well as fine art from museums, The R. Crumb Handbook tells it like it is!
