The very first collection in print of the works of the Crumb family. The metaphysics of the family's unique dynamics is carefully laid out by brother Maxon in his introduction. Further insights are then gleaned in Charles's letters to Robert, and Robert's journal pages. The cartooning is, of course, magnificent! From Charles's ropey pirates to daughter Sophie's hip self-representations and cutesy animals, this family sure can draw! Features work by Maxon, Charles, Robert, Sophie, and Jesse Crumb, and Aline Kominsky-Crumb.
