    Robert Crumb Kafka for Beginners (#nn) Story Page 134 Original Art (Totem Books, 1993). Though devoted largely to Crumb's realistic depictions of the life of author Franz Kafka, the book occasionally veers into abstract art. This page finds Crumb paying homage to the cubist style of George Grosz. The majority of the page is a printed paste-up background. Crumb caricatures Kafka at lower right in original art, and the hand-lettered block at the top is the only other piece of original art on the page. These two pieces were created in ink layout stock. The overall image area is 6" x 9.75". Marginal tape residue and light handling wear. In Excellent condition.

    More Information: EDIT: The entire background is a printed paste-up. The only original art consists of the smaller Kafka figure in the lower right, and the hand-lettered text block.
