forward and notes by Robert Crumb
The official biography of Maxon Crumb is available in two editions: quality softcover ($25) and unique 26-copy, lettered, hardcover edition ($68).
Maxon Crumb — artist, author, and yogi — embarked on a cross-country odyssey to conquer one severe challenge after another: a brutal childhood, crushing sibling rivalry, lost love, death threats, and debilitating disease.
Each absorbing chapter in MAXON: Art Out of Chaos recounts the agonizing steps Maxon took to succeed. In the process he restores frayed family ties while maturing into a fiercely independent innovator whose art and writings are as provocative and colorful as they are complex and imaginative.
Excerpts from Maxon's writings, anecdotes from his brother Robert Crumb, and a gallery of Maxon's stunning artworks crown an inspiring story of a man who bares his magical world to us through ink, oil, metal, wood, and word.
