An oversized hardcover monograph on the cartoonist and graphic artist Harrison Cady, the master of creatures, contraptions and crowd scenes.
Madness in Crowds is an overflowing art book monograph collecting the charming, virtuosic and staggeringly detailed work of the cartoonist and graphic artist Harrison Cady. A master of creatures, contraptions and crowd scenes, Cady is best known today for illustrating the works of children's book author Thornton Burgess, but this tome — the first ever collection of Cady's works — explores in detail the rest of his staggeringly prolific six-decade career, in particular his stunning, overcrowded, and obsessively rendered illustrations for the original Life magazine. It features over 300 images, a detailed biography by Denis and Violet Kitchen, and an introduction by Gary Panter.
