The press release from AMMO:
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 humor. All one thousand, limited edition books are numbered and signed by Steadman, and each comes with a limited edition print.
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.
