Krazy Kat: The Comic Art of George Herriman

Krazy Kat: The Comic Art of George Herriman Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"[A] long-overdue, definitive opus on that fabulous feline of American surrealism."-Richard Merkin, Vanity Fair

Krazy Kat, created by George Herriman, made its debut in 1913. During its 31-year run, it was enormously popular with the public and with many writers, artists, and intellectuals of the time. Herriman's stories of the Kat and his tormentor, Ignatz Mouse, were both playful and philosophical. This book is the most comprehensive survey of the innovative cartoon masterpiece and the first major biographical work on the artist himself. Illustrated with more than 150 of Herriman's comic strips as well as never-before-published drawings, archival photographs, and personal letters, this book is a testament to the brilliance of his work.

Synopsis:

- This profusely illustrated book contains over one hundred fifty of Herriman's comic strips including forty-eight of the Krazy Kat Sunday color cartoons as well as never-before-published drawings, archival photographs, and personal letters. - Since the book's first printing in 1986, it has sold more than 40,000 copies as an Abradale and in the original hardcover and paperback editions. The paperback, its most successful format, sold more than 30,000 copies. - The text is co-written by Patrick McDonnell, the creator of Mutts. Abrams recently published a book on McDonnell and his wildly popular and award-winning comic strip series.
