Description

    Robert Crumb Kafka For Beginners (R. Crumb's Kafka) Page 38 and Photostatted Page 39 Original Art (Totem Books, 1993). Two important pages from David Zane Mairowitz's book about Franz Kafka's life and work, as illustrated by Robert Crumb. Page 38 gives us a glimpse into Kafka's tormented sex life, while page 39 begins the adaptation of his best-known work, the 1915 novella, The Metamorphosis. Art on page 38 is in ink and graphite on blue-lined Bristol board, with a combined image area of 13.5" x 10". Page 39 is a photostatted image of the cover of the book's first edition, which carried a 1916 date; this page, including Crumb's lettering, is all photostat, taped into position. Signed by Crumb in the lower right corner. Both pages are matted and framed with Plexiglas together for an overall size of 23.75" x 19.5". Excellent condition.
