Los Angeles, Greybull Press., 2003, First Edition. (ISBN: 0-9672366-8-1) Illustrated Boards, 4to, np (224pp), profusely illustrated in b&w. "For the first time ever, R. Crumb's drawings of women are collected in one volume, in chronological order, spanning the thirty-eight years since his pen-and-ink beginnings. The usual fetishes are on display ­ the "built from the ground up" body type, the loving fixation on solid thighs and buttocks ­ but so is Crumb's heart, on his sleeve, in the great tenderness with which he renders the women in his life. They're all here: his high-school crushes, his paramours, the girls and women who tormented him - and to whom he gave it right back - or who caught his eye on the street, and, of course, his wife and fiery sometimes collaborator Aline, and their daughter Sophie. Add to this his mistress of fifteen years and you have not only a catalogue raisonné of Crumb's portraits of women but also a revealing record of a passionate life. Crumb calls it "an autobiography of sorts" and it is ­ these aren't just portraits of women but the most intimate portrait of Crumb's life in love". "Gotta Have 'Em" illuminates Crumb's lifelong fascination and obsession with the fairer sex. A brand new, pristine example still in the publisher's shrinkwrap.
