Ralph Steadman - Between the Eyes

£29.99

Product description

Ralph Steadman - Between the Eyes

Published in 1984 by Jonathan Cape Ltd

240 pages 257mm high x 250mm wide
Overall dimensions 268mm high x 265mm wide x 20mm

Ralph Steadman's Between the Eyes is a view of the world by a sheep in wolf's clothing. In deciding to squeeze the results of twenty-seven years of work into a single book at least one of Steadman's aims was to stop people asking him how such angst-filled drawings could emerge from such a kind and gentle soul as himself. Steadman doesn't go out of his way to shock. He is genuinely wounded each time a world event rears its ugly head.
Between the Eyes is neither chronological or autobiographical. It is a kaleidoscope of what struck this artist's eye. You will find cartoons by "Stead" from the Daily Sketch, scandals of the 1960s from Private Eye and a head-on collision with the screaming lifestyle of America.
Between the Eyes will make you laugh. It may make you gasp, lose sleep, change your politics or turn over a page or two in horror. But the genius of Ralph Steadman - the warmth, cynicism, vision of three decades - will not fail to hit you (like the man says) right between the eyes.

A previous owner has written his name on the front end-paper, otherwise the book, including dust jacket, is in near-perfect condition.
