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.

Features over 300 images, a detailed biography by Denis and Violet Kitchen, and an introduction by Gary Panter. 10x14”, 192 pages, clothboard hardcover, first edition of 2500.

Winner of a Gold Cube from the Art Director’s club, nominated for two Eisner awards, and selected by Folio as one of their “Best Books for Print People, 2019.”
