    Robert Crumb The Book Reader Calendar Production Composition Paste-Up (Carlson & Turner, 1990). The art (photostat) suggests an excerpt from a story, but it is in fact a self-contained commission, ordered by a rare-book store in Maine to grace a poster-scale calendar. This is the only published appearance of Crumb's bizarre and dreamlike self-caricature, barring an obligatory chronological reprint in The Complete Crumb Comics Vol. 17 (Fantagraphics, 2005). Dimensions, 19.5" x 29.75". Extensive peeling in pasted text patches, with overall adhesive staining and corner deterioration. Fair condition. From the Allan Holtz Collection.
