The Art of Harvey Kurtzman

In the "New York Times Book Review", Harvey Kurtzman was called 'One of the most important figures in postwar America'. He was the creator of "MAD Magazine" and "Playboy"'s 'Little Annie Fanny', and is considered one of the leading artists in American satirical and adult comics. Kurtzman's skills as a writer, artist and editor brought a witty and profound perspective to comics and magazine publishing. Through the various publications he created, Kurtzman had an immense impact on popular culture as well as on the artists who worked for him and all those who followed who draw comics and cartoons. "The Art of Harvey Kurtzman" is the first and only authorised celebration of this 'Master of American Comics'. The book will include pencil sketches, layouts, inked drawings, colour compositions, correspondence and hundreds of never-before-seen photos and art from the Kurtzman archives.
