Golden Crumbs! Mid-1960s dispatches from America’s most controversial cartoonist
From the very beginning, even before the sexual revolution made Robert Crumb the world’s most celebrated underground cartoonist, he felt compelled to commit his sexual fantasies to paper. Once upon a time, he’d destroy them, fearful of others discovering his quirky tastes. Then he found that baring his soul provided a sort of therapy, leading him to immortalize every desire in pen and ink.
Crumb’s personal selection of these works originally appeared in a gorgeous, but pricey TASCHEN Collector’s Edition, personally curated by the notoriously fastidious artist. This compact new edition, sourced from the same Robert Crumb Sketchbooks 1964-1982, offers the same high-quality obsession at a bargain price. Through satire, psychedelia, and outlandish sexually obsessed characters, 448 pages bring the best of Crumb’s prolific mid-1960’s period of June 1964 to September 1968.
