The Book of Genesis illustrated by R. Crumb

A five-year effort, published in 2009 A.D.

Crumb:
“In setting out to illustrate the Book of Genesis, I quickly learned that I had to read the text very carefully and closely in order to render as accurately as possible the words that were actually written there. … What’s remarkable about the Torah is the unbroken longevity of its preservation…. These writings were never buried and then rediscovered later. They are the oldest texts in continuous use in Western civilization.”
