rcrumb.com announces the sale of Crumb's new book Crumb's World.
A new hardcover book entitled Crumb's World has just been released by David Zwirner Books. Zwirner Gallery (New York & London) sell Crumb's original artwork and have now published a 190 page book of the artist's work. The book opens with an essay by Robert Storr and some introductory historical cartoons which influenced Crumb. The publisher's headline reads as: R. Crumb’s obsessions—from sex to the Bible, music, politics, and the vicissitudes and obscenities of daily life—are chronicled in this comprehensive book of work by the illustrious American comic artist.
The cover is illustrated and designed by Crumb so it's, needless to say, fantastic. The back cover also features a new self-portrait of Crumb. The book features all-color pages of Crumb comic book covers, pages from his sketchbooks, pages from his Kafka book, some strips in black and white (Footsy and The Religious Experience of Philip K. Dick), and drawings from his Art & Beauty series, as well as some recent portraits.
The hardcover book is 7.75" x 9.75 inches, nicely bound, with thick, smooth paper–a well-published book.

The Music Never Stopped T-Shirt
The Music Never Stopped: Roots of the Grateful Dead is a compilation album of songs, performed by the original artists, that the American rock group the Grateful Dead covered and performed live throughout their career. Crumb illustrated the album cover for its release in 1995. It's screen printed directly onto a Next Level !00% combed cotton cream shirt (Cream Next Level t-shirts are slightly darker than Natural t-shirts). The image is 12.5" x 12.5"– we had to print a large image to keep all the detail.
Next Level t-shirts are luxuriously soft with a tight knit; one of the best 100% combed cotton shirts on the market.
Fritz the Cat on Silver Grey T-Shirt
We're keeping Fritz cool for the summer by putting him on a Silver Grey Next Level t-shirt. Lighter than Gildan Heavyweight shirts, Next Level t-shirts have a finer yarn, a tighter knit and ultimately a smoother, softer feel in comparison. This 6 color screen print of Fritz the Cat is printed directly onto a super soft, 100% cotton Warm Gray t-shirt with vivid colors that you can only achieve with screen printing–transfers just aren't in the same league. Your satisfaction is guaranteed or your money back!
