Published in 2011, this 9 1/2' x 12 1/2" hardcover is filled primarily with high quality scans and high resolution photographs of George Herriman original Krazy Kat art – including many hand colored rarities. This treasure trove of art is accompanied by a wide variety or related material from Herriman's life and cartooning career, including newspaper tear sheets, family photographs, and plenty of other related ephemera, all assembled and laid out by Craig Yoe and nicely printed on bright, flat uncoated white stock. In also includes more than a dozen essays paying tribute to Herriman's genius, including classica appreciations by Summerfiled Baldwin, GIlbert Seldes, Tad Dorgan, e.e. cummings and others, as well as several appearing here for the first (and possibly only) time by the likes of Jay Cantor, RIchard Thompson and George Herriman's granddaughter, Dee Cox.
A must have for any true Herriman aficionado, we say.
