BIG YUM YUM BOOK
big yum yum book
Scrimshaw, 1975 (reprint SLG 1995)
Back in 1963, Crumb spent six lonely months sequestered in his sleazy bachelor pad on Cleveland’s east side creating this adult version of the old beanstalk to paradise fable with a decidedly ’60s flavor. Exquisitely colored and wittily written, the BIG YUM YUM BOOK shows us a side of Crumb we seldom see. Like his hero Oggie, Crumb also found love and romance. Within a few days of completing the story Crumb met and fell in love with Dana, also a horny young virgin looking for love in a sad, jaded world. They married and lived happily… for a while…, but that’s another story.
