RARE! LONG HANDWRITTEN & SIGNED LETTER BY R. CRUMB 1997 withSubject Publication
Up for your consideration is a long, original handwritten letter by R. The letter is signed and appears to be dated Feb. Here’s the story of this amazing, unique, item, as I understand it. A gentleman had a book he wanted to publish and decided to send R. Crumb a copy of it to see if the great Comic legend would be interested in illustrating it. This letter is R. Crumb’s reply to Russ, the author. The letter is in excellent condition. It has never been mounted or framed though it is definitely suitable for it. Also included is an extremely rare copy of Russ’ book, A Complete Guide to Failure: How to Fail at Everything You Do (See Pics #4-6). Crumb mentions in the letter, the book smelled of smoke when he received another copy of it (I assume). This one did, too. I aired it out and today no oder remains. The letter was kept in an archival sleeve and so didn’t suffer this fate. The letter measures 8 1/4 by 11 3/4 inches. It is in very good, lightly handled, condition with no damage or defects that I can see. Crumb would take the time to reply to Russ and do so with such honesty and (it seems to me) compassion is revealing. You can read the book for yourself and see what you think. The book is inscribed to me by Russ on the inside of its front cover. It appears that Russ xeroxed some examples of existing R. Crumb art to the front cover. I should emphasize that R. Crumb had nothing to do with this book in any way- only the letter. The book is enclosed to complete the story painted by this amazing letter. Please note- There is an address in France handwritten by Crumb in the upper right hand corner of the letter. I have no idea who’s address it is. Perhaps it’s Crumb’s, or was at the time. In the interest of the privacy of any and all parties I have blurred out the address in the photos here, but it is there in beautiful Crumb lettering in the actual letter. The entire letter is beautifully lettered with only one instance of White-out that I can see. It can be yours! This is a final sale. This item is absolutely genuine in all respects, as always.
