Publication: TASCHEN’s new bumper volume of Robert Crumb’s sketchbooks

Robert Crumb fans (of which there are thousands) hold on to your seats because TASCHEN have just released another volume of the legendary cartoonist’s sketchbooks, and this collection precedes the last.The six volume edition encompasses 18 years of the artist’s career, edited by Crumb himself into what he considers to be his very best work from the period. There’s the usual glut of smut you’d expect from this uniquely perverse mind, but also studies for commercial work and hundreds of other pieces of extremely rare material. As ever the folks at TASCHEN have spared no expense on the release, and the hardcover, slip-cased set contains a total of 1,344 luxuriously printed pages. But that should be enough to satisfy the most die-hard fans out there. Although you really can’t have too much Crumb in your life.
