In September 2011 artist and firebrand, Molly Crabapple, locked herself in a hotel room, covered the walls in paper, and filled 270 square feet of wall with art. The project, called "Molly Crabapple''s Week in Hell," is a wild ride through the imagination of an artist stretching herself to the limits of her endurance. Gorgeous photographs by Steve Prue show Ms. Crabapple''s sheer talent, audacity, and ambition at work. From the first stroke of pen upon paper to the glorious 360-degree view of a room full of art, this book chronicles the trials and joys of the Week in Hell, including visits from some of New York City''s artistic luminaries, absinthe parties, live models, and musical accompaniment. The project was funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign which garnered 745 backers who watched the whole week unfold in live webcasts with the artist, following Molly Crabapple into the madness of art.
Photos by Steve Prue, with additional photography by Kate Black, Yumna, and Andras Frenyo

"Molly Crabapple is an illustrator and chronicler of New York's demimonde. Her new book charts a five-day self-inflicted endurance test. The mission: to cover 270 square feet... with her hallucinatory Victorian-inspired illustrations... Week in Hell is equal parts Hieronymus Bosch, William S Burroughs and Cirque du Soleil."-The Guardian
"...every possible inch of space bar the floor and ceiling is indeed given over to art: vast 'canvasses' swirling with the lushest of lines forming the sort of neo-Victorian fantasies that could only come from Crabapple. It's like some Bacchanalian tea party as attended by animals, aerialists, and hundreds of tiny girlthings"-Page 45
