Numbers 1, 2 & 3

Published by David Zwirner Books.
Introduction by Paul Morris.

R. Crumb's beguiling drawings of bodacious and bold women from the 1990s to the present

Gathering all three volumes of R. Crumb’s acclaimed Art & Beauty Magazine, this publication guides the reader through the 20-year history of Crumb’s magazine, from the earliest images in the 1990s to the most recent drawings completed in 2016.

Art & Beauty: Number 1, originally published by Kitchen Sink Press in 1996, is at once a satirical take on aesthetics and a continued exploration of Crumb’s subversion of sexuality and mainstream values. Drawings of women in positions ranging from lascivious to modest are accompanied by quotations, many of which are from artists such as Leonardo da Vinci and Harvey Kurtzman. Mining his own obsessions and fantasies, Crumb reimagines the history of art, challenging social mores and expectations of propriety around the female form.
The second volume of Art & Beauty, published in 2003, expanded on the first, adding all-new drawings (also of women) and quotations, likewise taken from the history of art. The images appeal to a purely erotic sensibility, which is undercut by the inclusion of often philosophical prose.

The eagerly awaited Art & Beauty: Number 3 is released for the first time as part of Art & Beauty Magazine, published on the occasion of the artist’s exhibition at David Zwirner, London.
This beautiful edition, with a cover specially designed by the artist, is a wonderful window into Crumb’s world of bodies and ideas, art and beauty, for seasoned supporters and novices alike.

Born in Philadelphia in 1943, R. Crumb has used the comic-book medium to address the absurdity of social conventions, political disillusionment, irony, racial and gender stereotypes, sexual fantasies and fetishes. Inspired by Thomas Nast, Honoré Daumier and T.S. Sullivant, among others, his drawings offer a satirical critique of consumer culture.

Hans Ulrich Obrist & Robert Crumb: The Conversation SeriesHans Ulrich Obrist & Robert Crumb: The Conversation Series

Published by Walther König, Köln.

This out-of-sequence first volume in Hans Ulrich Obrist's Conversation Series is devoted to the influential cult comics artist, Robert Crumb-creator of Fritz the Cat, Zap Comics and Mr. Natural, among many other iconic underground mainstays. Both Obrist and Crumb are great conversationalists, and here they make a great match:
Obrist: Could you tell me a little bit about how you feel about America and world politics right now?
Crumb: Well, when I was young I really believed in the revolution. I don't really believe in revolution any more; I'm too old now. I think that any violent over-turning of a government or society causes a reaction that is bad or worse than the thing that they were revolting against to begin with... In the early 1970s I believed in that whole thing. I had basically left-wing sympathies but, I don't know, as someone said about communism: great idea, wrong species!

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Essay by Alfred M. Fischer.

Call it inspiring, call it disgusting--the work of cartoonist Robert Crumb initiates dialogue, at the very least. This publication comes as close to a catalogue raisonnee of Crumb's work yet, spanning 40 years of drawings, from Mr. Natural to Fritz the Cat to Zap Comix--and back.
