Gonzo the Art

21 Reviews
Ralph Steadman's legendary partnership with Hunter S. Thompson launched a new style of reporting and captured the imagination of a generation. Their most notorious collaboration, "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," became one of the bestselling titles of our era. Gonzo really is unique and eye-catching; it is the first time Ralph Steadman's art has been gathered together in one volume-a celebration of the illustrative style that influenced a generation of writers, designers, artists, and filmmakers. It is the summation of an inspired, brilliant career and of a style that is at once high art and social commentary. Steadman's signature lends itself as much to the nineties as it did to the sixties, seventies, and eighties.

User Review  - Philip - Goodreads

Hunter S. Thompson is the single most important political writer in my lifetime. His perspective is just as explosively wild as modern capitalistic Republican logic. Ralph Steadman meticulously illustrates this path as only an obsessive perfectionist would. Read full review
