for large
Any collaboration between Charles Bukowski and R. Crumb is a notable event. Each man is a consummate example of the anti-establishment artist who calls society to task for its foibles and failures. With humor and scathing satire Bukowski and Crumb have exemplified this important tradition.

These unpublished last journals by Bukowski candidly detail the events of his daily life, which R. Crumb has brilliantly illustrated with five full color hand printed serigraphs and six full page black-and-white illustrations.

The five color works are signed by Crumb and tipped into the book to accompany the text. A sixth color work serves as the cover.

The extraordinary printing required over 2,000 presses in 51 colors, and involved over 100 color separations.

About the Author & the Artist:
Charles Bukowski
Henry Charles Bukowski (August 16, 1920 – March 9, 1994) was a German-American poet, novelist, and short story writer. Bukowski’s writing was heavily influenced by the geography and atmosphere of his home city of Los Angeles, and is marked by an emphasis on the ordinary lives of poor Americans, the act of writing, alcohol, relationships with women, and the rough going of work. A prolific author, Bukowski wrote thousands of poems, hundreds of short stories, and six novels, eventually having over 60 books in print. In 1986 Time called Bukowski a "laureate of Amer­ic­an lowlife." (excerpt from Wikipedia)
Robert Crumb
Robert Dennis Crumb (born August 30, 1943), often credited simply as R. Crumb, is an American artist and illustrator recognized for the distinctive style of his drawings and his critical, satirical, subver­sive view of the American mainstream. He currently lives in Southern France with his wife Aline Kominsky-Crumb. (excerpt from Wikipedia)
