This six-book boxed set is the first collection of Robert Crumb sketches to be printed from the original art since the hard-bound, slipcased, seven volume series released by the German publisher Zweitausendeins between 1981 and 1997. Unlike the Zweitausendeins edition, which included every doodle ever made by the preeminent underground artist, our best-of edition has been personally edited by the notoriously picky artist to include only what he considers his finest work, including hundreds of late period drawings not published in previous sketchbook collections. Robert Crumb requested that the books representing the second half of his career be released first due to fan demand for new Crumb material (Vol. 1 covers the period 1981-2012, and Vol. 2 covers the period 1964-1980).
In the last 20 years Crumb's artistic output has slowed considerably, making new works more rare and highly prized. This collection of over 600 unseen drawings created between 1996 and 2012 makes this a must-have collectible for every Crumb fan.
* The slipcased set is made with loving attention to detail in a size and format selected by the artist.
* Each book in the boxed set contains 220 pages, for a total of 1,320 pages of prime Crumb.
* The set includes a hand-written introduction, and marbleized page edges from a design created by the artist.
* Each set of this 1,000-copy limited edition also includes a signed color lithograph of a Crumb original.
With Robert Crumb’s original art setting records at auction, this limited edition of new work with a signed print is not only sure to increase in value and be sought as an investment by collectors, it is a stunning addition to any contemporary art library.

Read information about the authorRobert Dennis Crumb (born August 30, 1943)— is an American artist, illustrator, and musician recognized for the distinctive style of his drawings and his critical, satirical, subversive view of the American mainstream.
Crumb was a founder of the underground comix movement and is regarded as its most prominent figure. Though one of the most celebrated of comic book artists, Crumb's entire career has unfolded outside the mainstream comic book publishing industry. One of his most recognized works is the "Keep on Truckin'" comic, which became a widely distributed fixture of pop culture in the 1970s. Others are the characters "Devil Girl", "Fritz the Cat", and "Mr. Natural".
He was inducted into the comic book industry's Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in 1991.
