Drawn Together by Aline & R. Crumb – Gosh! Exclusive Bookplate Edition

Decades of the Crumbs’ collaborative dirty laundry comics are collected in this hefty and beautifully produced hardcover from Knockabout.

Who could have imagined that in 1972, when Aline Kominsky, a Long Island escapee and bodaciously talented artist, broke her foot one rainy fall day, it would result in the most unique collaboration in comics history? Laid up in her house, she was persuaded by R. Crumb, her nerdy, neurotic boyfriend, to pass the time drawing together a “two-man” comic. The result is a jaw-dropping yet tender account, not only of the joys and challenges of a legendary marriage but also of the obstacles faced by struggling female artists. In Drawn Together, our foremost male-female cartooning couple recall their success at shocking America with Weirdo Magazine, the life-altering birth of their precocious daughter Sophie, and their astonishing move to the safe haven of France. With an irresistible introduction and a striking four-color section, Drawn Together becomes a graphic cause-célèbre and a must-have for any comics devotee.

The Crumbs came into Gosh! this week to drop off their signed bookplates. Here’s one of them:

And here they are themselves at our wee shop:

It’s £22.99, comes with an exclusive signed bookplate edition featuring all new art created just for us. If you’d like to have a copy held aside or arrange a mail order (anywhere in the world!) then send us an email to info@goshlondon.com.
