An engaging way to read the first book of the bible

I've been surprised by how meaningful and down to earth R. Crumb has made the Book of Genesis.

From an R. Crumb fan

I came to R. Crumb later in life as I was too young to see Fritz the Cat and Mr. Natural (my favorite). I saw a documentary on his life and became interested in his unique story.

I came to R. Crumb later in life as I was too young to see Fritz the Cat and Mr. Natural (my favorite). I saw a documentary on his life and became interested in his unique story.

"The Book of Genesis Illustrated" is a great example of his work. The meticulous effort that went in to create it is impressive in its scope and attention to detail. I have never had any interest in the Bible whatsoever, but have come to understand why the lessons in this book have become such powerful influences on world culture and our common sense of morality.

The emotion Crumb is able to convey through his illustrations turns the book of Genesis into both a heartfelt and dynamic story. The analysis by biblical scholars provided as footnotes are also helpful in clarifying some of the often mysterious aspects of the text.
