For a limited time, Word Play offers this historic set that documents the creation of seven unique illustrated books featuring the works of Maxon Crumb, Kim Deitch, Edward Gorey, Spain Rodriguez, S. Clay Wilson and dozens of other underground artists.
Cottage Classics tells how the artists work and how the books were made. S. Clay Wilson's ABC collects the alphabetical drawings Wilson created for his two children's books in the Cottage Classic line: Wilson's Andersen and Wilson's Grimm.

The books are written by Cartoon Art Museum founder Malcolm Whyte,* and are loaded with more than 120 illustrations, in b&w and full color. They are rich with the artists' personalities, their best artwork, and rare, behind the scenes views into their creative process.
