We can never get enough of Coffee Table books. Nothing beats an interesting oversized, well designed book. Unfortunately since Taschen is around, one could buy several a week, it’s hard to keep up.
The latest interesting release is “Sex Obsessions” by artist Robert Crumb. The artist is probably the worlds most famous underground cartoonist and has released impressive works over the years.
Now Crumb has selected his most intimately revealing comic strips and single page drawings to create a 258 page encyclopedic trip through his sexual psyche. All images were created between 1980 and 2006, and all strips are hand-colored for a lush vibrancy never seen in his comic books. In total the book features 14 complete stories, including My Troubles With Women, If I Were a King, A Bitchin’ Bod, and How To Have Fun With a Strong Girl, as well as 60 single page drawings.
This signed limited edition of 1,000 copies is a work of art in itself, with every part of the book—front and back covers, spine, and introductory pages—created for this project by Robert Crumb. Each book also comes with an art print selected by Mr. Crumb.
Taschen is increasing their prices on some of their limited edition releases, so if you got some spare money, you better get yourself a copy this week!
