An ambitious collection of illustrations, The Complete Crumb Comic Covers gathers over 200 comics covers drawn by Robert Crumb between 1960 and 2021. From Zap Comix to Arcade, American Splendor to Weirdo, this book spans over sixty years of the artist's career, presenting readers with a great many rare and never-before-seen documents. This monumental feat of publishing required several years of research, restoration, and coloring, all to ensure a quality publication faithful to the original illustrations.

These works, bursting with humour and cynicism, will enable readers to marvel at the stylistic evolution of an artist who never stopped reinventing himself over the decades as well as admire the labor of hand-lettering unique to each piece. The inventive compositions and detailed ornament deliver a strong visual impact, plunging admiring and appreciative readers deep into the teeming world for which the artist is known. A veritable voyage through time, these covers drawn by Robert Crumb bear witness to contemporary American history from the cold streets of Cleveland to anti-hippie crackdowns in San Francisco. They also attest to the vital importance of the self-published comics, hand distributed with minuscule print runs, that gave Crumb a place to express himself with utter artistic freedom. Run don't walk--this is a book not to be missed!
