MAXON: Art Out of Chaos

by Malcolm Whyte
forward and notes by Robert Crumb

The long-awaited biography of Maxon Crumb will be published by Fantagraphics Underground Press November 2018, $25 paperback edition. Word Play Publications, however, is proud to announce its publishing of a unique, hardcover edition limited to only 26 copies, each lettered A to Z and signed by Mr. Whyte.

Maxon Crumb — artist, author, and yogi — embarked on a cross-country odyssey to conquer one severe challenge after another: a brutal childhood, crushing sibling rivalry, lost love, death threats, and debilitating disease.

Each absorbing chapter in MAXON: Art Out of Chaos recounts the agonizing steps Maxon took to succeed. In the process he restores frayed family ties while maturing into a fiercely independent innovator whose art and writings are as provocative and colorful as they are complex and imaginative.

Excerpts from Maxon's writings, anecdotes from his brother Robert Crumb, and a gallery of Maxon's stunning artworks crown an inspiring story of a man who bares his magical world to us through ink, oil, metal, wood, and word.

$68.00, hardcover, limited edition, lettered A-Z, signed by Mr. Whyte
