Williamson, Skip. HALSTED STREET: TORMENT AND DRAMA FROM THE HOG BUTCHER: THE LIMITED EDITION. Princeton, WI: Kitchen Sink Press, 1990. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 53 pages. As New. Signed.

The graphic artist's landmark debut comic-strip novel. Now considered a late-modern cult classic. Limited Edition of 350 numbered and signed copies. Precedes and should not be confused with the regular trade edition. The Limited Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Skip Williamson: Regular-sized volume format. Glossy pictorial boards featuring the artist's work in color and titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Graphic art and text by Skip Williamson. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Chicago to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents, in its most collectible format, Skip Williamson's "Halsted Street". Named after one of Chicago's most famous streets/landmarks. It is a story that combines "hallucinogenic political analysis and Midwestern moralizing, which have made the author the ideal reporter of life in Middle America. The most political of underground humorists in the most thuggishly political of American cities". An absolute "must-have" title for Skip Williamson collectors. This copy is Number 109 (of the 350 numbered and signed copies), indicated as such on the Limitation Card, and it is very boldly and beautifully numbered and signed in black pen-marker on the Card (which is an original illustration) by Skip Williamson. The latter is neatly pasted on the front free endpaper. This title is a modern graphic art classic. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: Almost all other copies available online are the regular trade edition or have serious flaws. A rare signed copy thus. One of the most inventive American graphic artists of our time. A fine collectible copy. . ISBN 0878161236. $150.00
