The Absurd World of Charles Bragg.

New York: Abrams, 1980. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Very Good copy with dampstaing to the boards in a Fine dust jacket. This copy is inscribed by Charles Bragg on the front flyleaf. "This intriguing first book on Charles Bragg's art displays the technical virtuosity of this provocative social commentator. The panorama of human frailties -- greed, vanity, hypocrisy, among others -- is personified in his droll, gnomelike characters, painted in rich, vibrant colors or etched with a love of the turn of a line. Bragg is often compared to Bosch, Goya, and Daumier. Like them, Bragg is a master of traditional skills, and like them he uses these skills to prick the public conscience." Item #26539
