A three-decade retrospective of Ralph Steadman’s caustic, witty, outrageous art, including illustrations from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and the other legendary collaborations with Hunter S. Thompson that spawned "gonzo journalism." Illustrated throughout in color and black-and-white, with an introduction by Hunter S. Thompson.

Review:

Hunter S. Thompson, in his drunken, rambling introduction to this volume of paintings and illustrations, calls Ralph Steadman "the Albert Gore of twentieth century art." It's hard to imagine a less apt appellation: Steadman's drawings and paintings are the wild antithesis of the notoriously stiff V.P. His pop art is also the opposite of Warhol's clean lines and soulless imagery; it screams with pain and nightmare power. While Steadman is best known for his illustrations to Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and other works, here his art is given free rein, and works with titles like "Earliest man, full of the sense of his own worth, screaming into the blackness, needing no god but himself..." and "Good time crucifix" combine Steadman's trademark splattered ink and unfolded figures with collage and sloppy airbrush. Although the text may offend those with no sense of irony (Thompson compares Steadman to artist manqué Adolf Hitler; Steadman relates the story of his first bowel movement), the hyperactive visuals are sure to delight even those who've never snorted ether while tripping on pure human adrenochrome. --James DiGiovanna

Book Description HOUGHTON MIFFLIN, United States, 1998. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Ralph Steadman s legendary partnership with Hunter S. Thompson launched a new style of reporting and captured the imagination of a generation. Their most notorious collaboration, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, became one of the bestselling titles of our era. Gonzo really is unique and eye-catching; it is the first time Ralph Steadman s art has been gathered together in one volume-a celebration of the illustrative style that influenced a generation of writers, designers, artists, and filmmakers. It is the summation of an inspired, brilliant career and of a style that is at once high art and social commentary. Steadman s signature lends itself as much to the nineties as it did to the sixties, seventies, and eighties. Seller Inventory # AAS9780151003877
