Proud to Be Weirrd
Iconoclastic British artist Ralph Steadman has been creating editorial and political illustrations for over five decades. Steadman is revered for his ink-splattered, anarchic, and often shocking drawings. His well-known illustrations alongside the work of literary legend Hunter S. Thompson have long been celebrated and have achieved a cult-like following. Together, Steadman and Thompson's iconic work has come to be known as Gonzo journalism. Ralph and Hunter first met in 1970 on an assignment from Scanlan's Monthly magazine to cover the Kentucky Derby. Their 40-year friendship included collaborations on seminal books such as Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and The Curse of Lono, as well as numerous articles for Jann Wenner's Rolling Stone, including the George Foreman vs. Muhammad Ali fight and coverage of the Watergate Scandals. PROUD TOO BE WEIRRD is the ultimate monograph of this creative genius. Steadman's first-person narrative takes us on a literary and visual journey of his well-known, provocative work and is accompanied by his acerbic wit, heartfelt political views, and unique sense of humour. This must-have book comes in two collectible editions. All one thousand, limited edition books are numbered and signed by Steadman and each comes in a red, cloth-wrapped, slipcased box. Steadman is the recipient of numerous awards and accolades for his illustrations in classic books such as Alice in Wonderland, Treasure Island, Animal Farm, and Fahrenheit 451. His revered work has appeared in numerous publications throughout the years including Rolling Stone, The Daily Telegraph, and The New York Times. This fall, a documentary film on Steadman, narrated by Johnny Depp, will be released by Sony Pictures. Fifteen years in the making, the film For No Good Reason highlights the many reasons to admire this one-of-a-kind artist. Likewise, PROUD TOO BE WEIRRD celebrates the profound creative genius of Ralph Steadman.

Ceri's humorous but meaningful message accompanied by Ralph's sensational paintings will satisfy art-lovers and conservationists alike.

The Boids are back in town ... The follow-up to the award-winning EXTINCT BOIDS, this book features more of the incredible art of cartoonist Ralph Steadman. This time the focus is not on the birds that are gone, but the ones that there's still time to save. These are the 192 Critically Endangered birds on the IUCN Red List, species such as the Giant Ibis, the Kakapo, the Sumatran Ground-cuckoo and the iconic Spoon-billed Sandpiper – these, along with a number of classic Steadman creations such as the Unsociable Lapwing, are the NEARLY-EXTINCT BOIDS. Woids are again by author, conservationist and film-maker Ceri Levy. Together, Ceri and Ralph are THE GONZOVATIONISTS.

Ralph Steadman's Extinct Boids
When Ceri Levy asked Ralph Steadman to produce one piece of art representing an extinct bird for a recent exhibition, Ghosts of Gone Birds, Ralph said 'yes'. Then 'yes' again ... and again ... and again. An astonishing 100 paintings later, Extinct Boids was born. Ralph got carried away by the birds, taking Ceri with him ... this book details the discoveries they made on their travels through the savage seas of extinction. After stumbling on the previously hidden Toadstool Island, where the extinct birds of the world live on in secretive harmony, the duo spent nearly a year in close proximity to a host of fantastical avian creatures. Ralph documents them all in this series of remarkable paintings, featuring unique interpretations of well-known birds such as the Great Auk, Passenger Pigeon and Dodo, along with less familiar members of the feathersome firmament - Snail-eating Coua, for example, or the Red-moustached Fruit Dove - and a variety of bizarre beasts including the Gob Swallow, the Long-legged Shortwing and the Needless Smut. All are captured in a riot of expression and colour, with a slice of trademark Steadman humour. Strictly limited to just 150 copies, this Special Edition is an ultra-deluxe version of the book, bound with real cloth and signed by Ralph and Ceri. It is in a cloth-bound presentation box, and comes complete with a signed, numbered A3 giclee print with torn edge and debossed border, featuring Steadman's interpretation of the Black Mamo. This print, produced specially for this book, makes this boxed set the ultimate collector's edition.
