Krazy & Ignatz: Love Letters In Ancient Brick (1927-28) SC

KRAZY & IGNATZ 1927-28 LOVE LETTERS IN ANCIENT BRICK SC - George Herriman; Edited by Bill Blackbeard In 2002, Fantagraphics embarked on a publishing plan to reintroduce the Krazy Kat strip to a public that has largely never seen it: this volume is the second of a long-term plan to chronologically reprint strips from the prime of Herriman's career, most of which have not seen print since originally running in newspapers 75 years ago. Each volume is edited by the San Francisco Cartoon Art Museum's Bill Blackbeard, the world's foremost authority on early 20th Century American comic strips, and designed by Jimmy Corrigan author, Chris Ware, who may well go down as the best cartoonist of the 21st Century. In addition to the 104 full-page black-and-white Sunday strips from 1927 and 1928 (Herriman did not use color until 1935), the book includes introductions by Blackbeard, vaudeville historian Ben Schwartz, and reproductions of rare Herriman ephemera from Ware's own extensive collection, as well as annotations and other notes by Ware and Blackbeard. SC, 10x12, 120pg, b&w
