Description

    Robert Crumb Kafka for Beginners pages 129 and 130 Original Art (Icon Books, 1993). Robert Crumb was an inspired choice to illustrate Totem Book's Kafka primer, Introducing Kafka (later reprinted as R. Crumb's Kafka, and Kafka). These two beautifully cross-hatched pages feature Leni from the story "The Trial," and as David Zane Mairowitz's typeset caption notes, the character of Leni is one of Kafka's most blatant motifs of an "ensnaring woman" who "seems to provide erotic distraction for all men accused by the Court, being especially aroused by those who display a sense of guilt." Each expressive page has an approximate image area of 6" x 9.5", with an overall size of 9" x 12.5". The art is in Excellent condition.
