The 700 islands, cays and islets of the Bahamas are scattered across over 96,000 square miles of the Atlantic Ocean. Only 23 of the islands are inhabited, and amongst these, visitors will find an intriguing blend of the old and new, the expected and unexpected. The character of each island is different: there is San Salvador, with its turquoise waters that are perfect for diving, Inagua with its untamed wilderness and renowned wildlife, Grand Bahama with its glitz and glamour and New Providence with the bustling cosmopolitan capital, Nassau. Of those that travel in search of a paradise, many find it in the Bahamas. In the Bahamas Sketchbook, acclaimed watercolour artist Graham Byfield masterfully captures the spirit and character of these fames isles, transporting readers to this tranquil and captivating place where classic architecture is found alongside palm-fringed beaches.

The drawings in this sketchbook began December 1995 and finished in January 1996, all while CEC was attending Columbia College Chicago and working Room Service at Indian Lakes Resort. They serve as time capsules, evolutionary progress barometers, art study specimens, imagination permission slips, Inspirado channels, wonderment seeds and collaboration invites. As the wiseman, Professor of Philosophy Arnold Mamath, once said, "Things are more like they are NOW than they have EVER been before." In this day and age, we couldn't agree more.

Author: Robert Crumb
Release Date: 2005
R. Crumb is undoubtedly the foremost cartoonist of the latter 20th Century, and his sketchbooks - in which he has written and drawn continually from the early 1960s to present - might rank as his finest achievement. Fantagraphics is proud to present these sketchbooks, in facsimile form, as a comprehensive series of volumes that will eventually run well over 4,000 pages. Volume 10, covering mid-1975 through early 1977, is the latest, and it represents one of the more inquisitive and soul-searching periods in this phenomenal artist's life. These sketchbooks also stand as a monumental existential document. Crumb repeatedly expresses, through a variety of penetrating and coruscating visual metaphors, the central existentialist struggle: to live in the full light of consciousness with all the risk, pain and suffering that entails. Nowhere is this more apparent than in this tenth volume, which coincides with the disintegration of the late-1960s counterculture that made him famous. Like every volume in the series, though, Volume 10 offers the full panoply of a life of perceptions rendered with consummate artistry. Available in simultaneous hardcover and paperback formats.
