"Sweet dreams, kiddies."
—Love, R. Crumb

Based on his famously zany comics, it’s clear that the mind of R. Crumb is full of weird yet compelling twists and turns. It’s no surprise then, that R. Crumb's Dream Diary, Elara Press’s highly anticipated new collection of off-beat, episodic, disjointed and yet endearing recountings of Crumb’s subconscious productions is so engrossing. This compact yet generous 500-page clothbound hardcover offers the reader a true behind-the-curtain view into what makes R. Crumb R. Crumb, from visions of silly celebrity encounters to menacing forces in the forest. “Dream of Hideous Creature Coming Out of a Hole in My Side,” “Dream of Huge Woman in Thigh-High Boots,” “Dream of Taking Morphine" and "The Dream About the Helicopter Girl" (illustrated above) are just a few of the entries spanning 1976–2017.
