Iconoclastic British artist Ralph Steadman has been creating editorial and political illustrations for more than five decades. Steadman is revered for his ink-splattered, anarchic, and often shocking drawings. His well-known illustrations alongside the work of literary legend Hunter S. Thompson have long been celebrated and have achieved a cult-like following. Together, Steadman and Thompson's iconic work has come to be known as Gonzo journalism. Ralph and Hunter first met in 1970 on an assignment from "Scanlan's Monthly "magazine to cover the Kentucky Derby. Their 40-year friendship included collaborations on seminal books such as "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" and "The Curse of Lono," as well as numerous articles for Jann Wenner's "Rolling Stone," including the George Foreman vs. Muhammad Ali fight and coverage of the Watergate scandal. PROUD TOO BE WEIRRD is the ultimate monograph of this creative genius. Steadman's first-person narrative takes us on a literary and visual journey of his well-known, provocative work and is accompanied by his acerbic wit, heartfelt political views, and unique sense of humor. This must-have book comes in two collectible editions.
