    Description

    Raw Group (Raw Books/Pantheon Books, 1980-87) Condition: Average FN. Art Spiegelman and Francoise Mouly's groundbreaking mix of comics and fine art, RAW, is represented here by the first eight oversize issues, plus the Read Yourself RAW compilation, which reprints from issues 1-3. All the inserts are included: the award-winning MAUS, the "Reagan Speaks for Himself" flexidisk, even the bubblegum cards (gum, too!) from issue 2, all still attached as originally sold. The list of artists who contributed work could fill a catalog by itself, so let's just say the best alternative artists around the world can be found within these pages, along with a few choice reprints of comics rarely seen. Most of the books grade about fine; issue #1 looks particularly nice. All have become difficult to find in recent years, making this group lot a wise buy for some lucky bidder.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
