    Description

    Robert Crumb - Original Illustration "Honey Bunch Kaminski" (circa 1968). From the pages of Snatch Comics #1 comes this fantastic piece of art, one of Crumb's most controversial pieces. Though "Honey Bunch Kaminski" was only noticed by a few people when the comic first came out in small runs by Apex Novelties, things changed when it was taken over by the Print Mint. One of the first things the Print Mint boys did was get the book into every "head shop" in the San Francisco Bay Area. Then they printed a large poster, in both regular and black light, of Honey. By 1973 many comic and head shops refused to carry Undergrounds like Snatch for fear of being busted for child pornography. This is a piece that would be at the center of any quality Underground art collection. The image area measures 5" x 7". A light scuff mark is noticeable on Honey Bunch's cheek; otherwise, this piece is in Excellent condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
