Art & Beauty #3
Intended for mature audiences
The third, last, and most splendiferously accomplished volume of R. Crumb's Art & Beauty series. Three years in the making, A&B 3 contains 44 pages of almost exclusively female images drawn from extemporaneous sightings and photos (selfies!) and displaying the artist's obsession with large rumps and the infamous peanut-shaped curve. Includes running ruminations by the artist as well as guest ruminations by George Grosz, William de Kooning, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and others. By the artist whose ass The New York Observer can kiss.
