Not paginated but approximately 340pp. Fine black cloth with white line illustration on upper board, red titling etc to spine, red endpages, illustrated title page, illustrated throughout on quality art stock in colour and black & white. A massive collection of "apocalyptic images and midnight apparitions" by 42 comic-book / graphic novel artists. The title is a pun on the Nazi-era German phrase "entartete kunst" ("degenerate art") From the publisher: "ENTARTETE KUNTS is a spectacular collection of underground artwork written and curated by Dennis Dread, featuring a foreword by acclaimed underground comix historian Patrick Rosenkranz. A total orgy of imagery featuring nearly 400 full color reproductions from 42 international artists". Although there is no stated limitation the print-run of the hardcover edition was certainly small as it is seldom seen. It was presumably smaller than that of the softcover, which was apparently limited to 600 copies. A bit of light bumping to corners and spine ends else "as new" thus a tight, bright near Fine copy in mylar protected near Fine dust jacket. NOTE: Very large and heavy volume will require considerable additional shipping on any international order and may require additional shipping for US domestic orders. Item #69260
