Straight for the art | R. Crumb’s “Varieties of Women”
Does this make Robert Crumb officially fashionable? The undeground comix legend and author of The Book of Genesis Illustrated is gracing the internet presence of fashion bible W magazine with a gallery titled “Varieties of Women.” It’s actually something of a history lesson, with featured females ranging from cavewomen to Egyptian gods to medieval German peasants to 19th-century asylum inmates to Crumb’s own high school classmates to “friends” of Russ Meyer and Hugh Hefner. Yes, Abu Ghraib torturer/fall gal Lynndie England’s in there too. And yes, portions of it are as NSFW as you might expect.
