Gary Panter Slipcase HC (2008) comic books 2008
1st printing. By Gary Panter. Gary Panter has been one of the most influential figures in visual culture for over 30 years. From his exuberant paintings to his cartoon icon Jimbo, and the Emmy-award winning design of Pee-Wee's Playhouse, he has left his mark on every medium he's touched. This definitive edition of his work is split into two full-color volumes. The first volume is a comprehensive monograph featuring over 1,000 images of paintings, sculptures, posters, comics, and drawings complemented by essays from Byron Coley, Richard Klein, Robert Storr, and more, as well as the longest interview to date with Panter. The second volume is a selection from Panter's sketchbooks, where the artist's ideas have long incubated and the site of some of his finest work. Very little of the work contained in these volumes has been published in any form. Hardcover (2 Volumes Slipcased), 9 1/2-in. x 11-in., full color. Cover price $95.00.
