An unprecedented insight into the untamed art and psyche of R. Crumb. For more than forty years, legendary American artist Robert Crumb has documented his nightly dreams in a meticulously kept private journal. This material has stood as a guarded secret in a career defined by an impish compulsion to publically selfdisclose. All of the artists well-documented preoccupations are present and accounted for rampant egomania, insatiable lust, profound self-disgust, the sad beauty of old America, the moral bankruptcy of new America and the fools errand quest for spiritual enlightenment but here they are entirely untamed, springing forth from forces beyond even his control. Published for the first time, the complete Dream Diaries offer readers a deep, dark look under the hood of one of Americas most aggressively dynamic comedic voices.

[R.Crumb's] black-and-white work is bawdy, often X-rated, and drawn with a cross-hatched precision that feels closer to a museum-caliber etching than the coloring-book wonders of old comics. But theyre really not so far off: [...] Readers will discover how a cartoonists imagination has always grown from the same place of surreal, anxious wonderment and escapist reflection. * Rain Taxi * [R.Crumb's Dream Diary] is both familiar and surprising, pleasurable and enlightening. It strikes and maintains the difficult balance between thrill and intimacy. -- Lily Majteles * Brooklyn Rail *

Övrig information

Widely considered the greatest cartoonist of the 20th century, Robert Crumb (born 1943) drew comics from a very young age. After a brief career in greeting-card design in Cleveland, in 1965 the young artist discovered LSD, and headed for San Francisco, where he published Zap Comix 1 , reinventing the comics medium. In 1994 he was the subject of an acclaimed documentary film by Terry Zwigoff. His adaptation of The Book of Genesis was published in 2009 and the original art for the project was exhibited internationally, most notably at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, in 2009, and as part of the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013. His most recent books include Bible of Filth , Art & Beauty Magazine and (with Aline Kominsky-Crumb) Drawn Together . Crumb lives and works in Southern France.
