Previews Pluk for maj 2012

Ny rekord i Previews: en tegneserie til den astronomiske pris af $1000. Selvfølgelig aaalt for meget at give for en tegneserie, også selv om den består af seks luksus bind på i alt 1320 sider. Og selv om der følger et signeret tryk med. Og selv om det er et begrænset oplag på 1000 eks. Ingen ny tegneserie udgivelse bør koste så meget, og derfor får den heller ikke min anbefaling, jeg nævner den kun for chok effekt: det drejer sig om Robert Crumb: The Sketchbooks 1982-2011, fra kunstforlaget Taschen Books, et forlag, der er berømt for at producere bøger både i den billige ende og den dyre ende. Tænk bare på verdens største og dyreste bog: “G.O.A.T.”, Muhammad Ali bogen Greatest of All Time. Jeg ved godt, der er langt mellem nye Crumb udgivelser i dag, manden er efterhånden blevet en ældre herre, men jeg synes, denne bogs eksklusivitet strider mod undergrunds-ånden fra Haight-Ashbury!

Book Description

Publication Date: August 9, 2012 | Series: Robert Crumb
 
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.
