Those who know Kurt Vonnegut as one of America's most beloved andinfluential writers will be surprised and delighted to discover that he was also agifted graphic artist. This book brings together the finest examples of his funny, strange, and moving drawings in an inexpensive, beautifully produced giftvolume for every Vonnegut fan.Kurt Vonnegut's daughter Nanette introduces this volume of his never beforepublished drawings with an intimate remembrance of her father. Vonnegut alwaysdrew, and many of his novels contain sketches. Breakfast of Champions(1973)included many felt-tip pen drawings, and he had a show in 1983 of his drawings atNew York's Margo Feiden Gallery, but really got going in the early 1990s when hebecame acquainted with the screenprinter Joe Petro III, who became his partner inmaking his colorful drawings available as silkscreens.With a touch of cubism, mixed with a Paul Klee gift for caricature, a Calder-like abilityto balance color and line, and more than a touch of sixties psychedelic sensibility, Vonnegut's aesthetic is as idiosyncratic and defiant of tradition as his books. Whilewriting came to be more onerous in his later years, making art became his joyfulprimary activity, and he made drawings up until his death in 2007. This volume, and aplanned touring exhibition of the drawings, will introduce Vonnegut's legion of fans toan entirely new side of his irrepressible creative personality.
