Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the third book in a successful series of art books by the grandfather of American alternative comix. These sketches reveal another side — a contemplative one — to the controversial artist, renowned for his taboo-breaking satires of American society. Through his intricate cross-hatching and observant line the drawings here show Crumb as an imaginative chronicler of everyday life. R. Crumb's legendary observation skills are showcased in this unusual sketchbook: 96 pages of black and white drawings made by Crumb on placemats in his favorite restaurants while "waiting for food" (we've removed the gravy and wine stains). Beautifully produced hardcover book with dust jacket and old-fashioned linen binding. Crumb is arguably the most renowned artist of our times and this beautifully produced art book will make the ideal gift for any Crumb fan, both new and old alike.

Synopsis:

This is the third book in successful series of occasional sketches by the grandfather of American alternative comix. These sketches reveal another side-- a contemplative side-- to the controversial artist, renowned for his taboo-breaking satires of American society. With his intricate cross-hatching and observant line, the drawings here show Crumb as an imaginative chronicler of everyday life.

Description:

The celebrated R. Crumb draws in restaurants, specifically Le Micocoulier, Le Trouilladou Pizzeria, and the Auberge des Violets Verts, all located in Sauve, the southern French town where he and his family live.
