450 color album illustrations from the legendary comic artist

The work of legendary comic book artist/lech Robert Crumb has been gathered in numerous graphic novels and books, but this is the first hardcover compiling the hundreds of record covers he’s illustrated over his career. His first album cover was for Janis Joplin’s Cheap Thrills in 1968 when Crumb was just a youngin’ living in Haight Ashbury, and since then his works have graced everything from 7″ singles to CDs for both up-n-comers to forgotten veterans. The book, R. Crumb: The Complete Record Cover Collection, boasts 450 four-color illustrations including classics such as Truckin’ My Blues Away, Harmonica Blues, and Please Warm My Weiner. The hardcover will hit shelves on November 7, but it can be already pre-ordered for $17.
