About this title:

Synopsis: A wild ride to dark Americana: Hunter S. Thompson’s and Ralph Steadman’s most eccentric book   The Curse of Lono is to Hawaii what Fear and Loathing was to Las Vegas: a journalist’s news event “coverage” that ends up an unclassifiable twist of fiction and reportage, myth and crazed surrealism. Featuring all of the zany, hallucinogenic wordplay and feral artwork for which the Hunter S. Thompson/Ralph Steadman duo became known and loved, the book was at once their exemplary and most eccentric output.

The original edition of The Curse of Lono, published 1983, had long been out of print when TASCHEN brought out a signed, limited re-edition almost a decade ago. The book sold out before it even hit the stores. Now available as a standard TASCHEN edition, this fresh, smaller format, makes the gonzo masterpiece accessible to everyone.

From the Publisher: Originally published in 1983, Curse features all of the zany, hallucinogenic wordplay and feral artwork for which the Hunter S. Thompson/Ralph Steadman duo became known and loved. This curious book, considered an oddity among Hunter’s oeuvre, was long out of print, prompting collectors to search high and low for an original copy. TASCHEN’s signed, limited edition sold out before the book even hit the stores, but this unlimited version, in a different, smaller format, makes The Curse of Lono accessible to everyone.

Book Description Taschen Deutschland Gmbh+ Jun 2014, 2014. Buch. Book Condition: Neu. Neuware - Ein wilder Ritt durch die dunkelsten Abgründe AmerikasDas exzentrische Kultbuch von Hunter S. Thompson und Ralph SteadmanFür Hawaii ist The Curse of Lono das, was Fear and Loathing für Las Vegas war: Die verrückte Geschichte einer journalistischen 'Berichterstattung', die in einem wilden Ritt durch die dunkelsten Abgründe Amerikas endet. Erstmals 1983 erschienen, kombiniert The Curse of Lono Hunter S. Thompsons halluzinogene Schreibe und seinen irrsinnig komischen Wortwitz mit den unkonventionellen, fast barbarischen Zeichnungen Ralph Steadmans - jene berüchtigte rauschhafte Mischung, für die das Autoren/Zeichner-Duo so geliebt wird.Dieses überaus sonderbare Buch, das sogar im ausgefallenen Werk von Hunter S. Thompson eine Kuriosität darstellt, war lange Zeit vergriffen und wurde zu einem äußerst begehrten Sammlerobjekt. TASCHENs limitierte und von beiden Künstlern handsignierte Ausgabe war ausverkauft, bevor sie überhaupt in die Buchläden gelangen konnte. Mit dieser unlimitierten Ausgabe in einem kleineren Format hat nun jeder die Möglichkeit, ganz nüchtern vom heimischen Sofa aus an den Räuschen des Duos teilzuhaben. 208 pp. Englisch, Französisch, Deutsch.
