    Robert Crumb Old Time Blues Singers Illustration Original Art (1975). Definitive prototype-art for Crumb's famous Heroes of the Blues trading-card folio, which dates from 1980. This five-years-earlier montage depicts nine essential Southern Blues artists of the early 20th century. Page-numbered as if for a book, but undocumented as a published piece. Ink on uniformly age-toned two-ply bond, with an image area of approximately 9" x 12.5". Minimal spot-staining. Very Good condition.

    More Information: Revised to reflect the removal of a portion of the original lot (a letter from Robert Crumb), and the placement of that letter into a self-contained additional lot. -- MHPrice
