Krazy & Ignatz: The Complete Sunday Strips 1916-1924 
Limited Hardcover Edition

"Final limited-edition deluxe Krazy hardcover (it's Volume 1, but the third to be published) collects the three Krazy & Ignatz softcover books which comprehensively compile the first nine years (1916 through 1924) of Krazy Kat Sunday strips, under hard covers. It's not a slipcase, it's a single hardcover book. The covers to the original three softcover books are NOT included, but literally everything else is, including nine years' worth of black-and-white masterpieces (and 10 color strips), plus all the bonuses (other rare strips, the entire Us Husbands). This is the one collectors have been waiting for, enabling you to complete your Krazy Sundays collection in three enormous, deluxe hardcover books designed by Chris Ware. "





Krazy & Ignatz: The Complete Sunday Strips 1925-1934
Hardcover SOLD!

"Second limited-edition printing of this deluxe hardcover (limited to 600 copies this time) compiles the first five Krazy & Ignatz softcover collections books  published, comprehensively collecting the years 1925 through 1934, under hard covers. It's not a slipcase, it's a single hardcover book. The covers to the original five softcover books are NOT included, but literally everything else is. And yes, we are similarly collecting the years 1935-1944 and, eventually, 1916-1924, as those softcover volumes are completed. (Since we get asked this once in a while — even though it's covered in the first one we did, at the end of the book, ahem — YES, we will go back and reprint the years prior to 1925, after we publish everything through 1944, when the strip ended.) A beautiful, must-have brick of a book for the Ignatz in you (though lobbing it at
any unrequited love interests WILL cause serious physical harm — be warned)."
