Krazy Kat & the Art of George Herriman: A Celebration
A tribute to Krazy Kat, one of the most influential and innovative comic strips of all time, and to its singularly talented creator George Herriman, this handsome monograph surveys his career through gorgeously reproduced art, original drawings, ephemera, and anecdotes. The book includes essays and commentary by Jay Cantor, Douglas Wolk, Harry Katz, Richard Thompson, Mabel "Toots" Herriman (George's daughter), Dee Cox (his granddaughter), Craig McCracken, and Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill Watterson, along with two seminal writings on Herriman by Gilbert Seldes and E.E. Cummings.
"Craig Yoe has dug up never-published artwork, artifacts, and letters that will bring Herriman to life for the uninitiated while giving fans something new to feast on."—Los Angeles Magazine
