Overview

The illustrations in this book have been gathered from several different sources. A brief explanation should help the reader to better understand and enjoy them. In comic-strip terminology there are 'Sunday pages' and 'dailies.' The Krazy Kat Sunday pages in black and white, consisting of pen and ink drawings, each measuring approximately 20 by 17 inches, have almost all been reproduced from the original artwork. Relatively large, Herriman's drawings are skillfully rendered with a strength and clarity which give them an energetic presence.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This 1986 volume collects a large portion of Herriman's Krazy Kat comic strips, which appeared in newspapers nationwide for 31 years (until he died) as well as a smattering of his other artwork (158 illustrations, 48 in color). Though the strips were initially created for humor, critics now see a heavier surrealistic quality to Herriman's style. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
