    Description

    Robert Crumb Kafka for Beginners page 131 Original Art (Icon Books, 1993). The narrative of Kafka for Beginners by David Zane Mairowitz is sharp and insightful, and Robert Crumb's inspired pen drawings take the reader's eye into the heart of Prague and into the mind and imagination of its most anxious and self-conscious denizen. Crumb produces a version of Kafka's world -- both the real Prague and the strange cities of his fiction -- that is simultaneously European and American, redolent of the 1920s and the 1990s, filled with Kafka's insurmountable neuroses illustrated in evocative visual detail. Originally published in England by Icon Books, Crumb spent over a year drawing the 176 pages. Kafka gets used and abused in this erotic 131st page. The image area measures 6" x 9.5", and the art is in Excellent condition. A perfect Crumb gem.
