The Book of Genesis as Illustrated by R. Crumb
Can you imagine the undertaking of turning all 50 chapters of the Book of Genesis into a graphic novel? Not even R. Crumb could, at first. He was going to do a takeoff of Adam and Eve's story, but a friend threw down the challenge of turning all of Genesis into one big graphic novel. Crumb was all set to satirize it, until the bizarre text proved to be satire-proof. And, behold! Crumb's straight illustration of the unabridged story of The Book of Genesis.
Crumb's Genesis took five years to complete and includes 207 black and white drawings that incorporate every single word from the first book of the Old Testament.
