Thank you to everyone who has pledged and shared this project!

Do you want to live in a world filled with beautiful art books and bizarre printed matter? Of course you do! 

Join us - be a part of Last Gasp's fall publishing season and help launch the next fleet of twisted art books into laps, coffee tables, and bookshelves worldwide. 

The book business is changing. In the past, it was "difficult" to publish unusual books. Now it is nearly impossible. To cover the costs of printing we need up-front support from people who love books. 

The money you contribute will go directly into the printing and production costs of these forthcoming publications.

About Last Gasp:

Since 1970, Last Gasp has been an axis of the art and counterculture communities in San Francisco and beyond, publishing both emerging and established artists. 

From our early years publishing underground comix to more recent art books, we've tried to publish unusual artists whose artwork moves us on a visceral level. In more than four decades we have published books with artists such as Robert Crumb, Mark Ryden,Camille Rose Garcia,Gary Baseman, Robert Williams, Junko Mizuno,Trina Robbins, S. Clay Wilson, Justin Green, Spain Rodriguez, Keiji Nakazawa, Suehiro Maruo, Elizabeth McGrath, Timothy Leary, Todd Schorr, Ron English, Laurie Lipton, Diane DiPrima, and countless others.

In addition to publishing, Last Gasp is a distributor, selling books from small and independent publishers to a network of booksellers worldwide.

Choose a reward and help us ensure this weirdness lives on!

Risks and challenges

The biggest potential risk is that one or more of the books will be slightly late, due to unexpected production issues. The books on this particular list are all in advanced stages of production and they are all expected to arrive before the end of the year (2014) except for Jay Howell's book, "Punks Git Cut," which should be available in February.

FAQ

  • You CAN choose more than one reward, but at first glance, it's not clear how.

    The best thing to do is make a total of all the rewards you want, and pledge in that amount.

    Once the campaign ends, we will send a survey and you can choose the additional reward(s) at that time.

    If one of the rewards is a limited item, select that one first.

    Last updated:
  • Sometimes, but not always. If there are still available copies of the rewards you want at the end of the campaign, you may be able to claim them. Once the campaign ends, we will send a survey and you can choose the additional limited reward(s) at that time, if they are available.
