Overview

R Crumb is undoubtedly the foremost cartoonist of the latter 20th Century. His sketch-books, in which he has written and drawn continually from the early 60's to the present, might rank as his finest achievement. Presented in facsimile form, Volume 7 covers mid-1969 through the end of 1976 and represents one of the more inquisitive and soul-searching periods in his life. Coinciding with Crumb's initial rise to fame and his subsequent rejection of the late 60's counterculture that made him famous, Volume 7 offers a rare insight into the creative process. These sketchbooks show how his ideas are formed and how his technique and craft are honed.
