One of the leading figures of the underground comix movement, R. Crumb’s work is as distinctive as it is polarizing. The eccentric social satirist first rose to prominence in the 1960s counterculture scene, going on to be one of the most prolific and influential cartoonists of the 20th century. Fritz the Cat is one of Crumb’s most iconic comic strips, appearing in Help!, Cavalier, and numerous underground publications between 1965 and 1972. This journal’s cover is printed on foil in five colours, embossed, then foil stamped. It’s also powerfully practical: a pocket at the back for receipts and scraps, two bookmarks and a solid magnetic side flap. This journal is perfect for personal use and makes a dazzling gift. Hardcover. 176 lined pages. 6 x 8.5 inches.
