Taschen has released a fantastic six-volume set of R. Crumb's sketchbooks, based on the original hard-bound, slip-cased, seven-volume series released by the German publisher Zweitausendeins between 1981 and 1997. As Taschen notes, "Unlike the previous edition, which included every doodle ever made by the preeminent underground artist, our edition has been personally edited by the notoriously fastidious artist to include only what he considers his best work, reproduced directly from the original sketchbooks."

Grotesk has been a busy man. We had him do a special t-shirt at our showcase during SXSW, and he continues his design duties around the world of sports and art culture. (He also designed two of our favorite covers of all-time, the newsstand and subscriber of issue n101). He has released a version of the "6ft 6in" lamp with Case Studyo in the past, but now he has just released a black/red "banned" colorway version of the lamp, standing 75cm – 30inch high and featuring hand painted wood. Made in an edition of 23, naturally.

Sometimes the best part about skate deck art is when an unexpected artist get the right graphic created. I wouldn't think of British artist David Shrigley to be one of the skate graphic types, but his fantastic "Politicians Make Me Sick" deck for our friends at Park Life in San Francisco works just right. Made in a limited quantity of 150, the deck is going for $125 on the Park Life site.

There is so much to show you about Andy Rementer, the cover artist of the brand new April 2014 Juxtapoz. We have loved his work for years, whether seeing it at Pick Me UP in London, or in various commercial avenues such as New York Magazine or the NY Times. His cartoon-insprired works, whether actually in cartoon-format or in fine art form, are colorful, unique characters that bring to mind some of the best in animation and comics. We are so happy to have him in the alumni of Juxtapoz cover artists.

The list of artists who have made prints with Pace Editions and shown in the Pace Prints gallery is enviable.

A week ago, we showed you a teaser video of the new Case Studyo project with Chicago-based artist Cody Hudson. Today, Case Studyo are thrilled to announce the launch of a very special porcelain sculpture with the artist. This incense burner called ‘Vibes melt down 2043’ will enhance your office, home, maybe even a public place. It’s meant to stimulate the mind and evoke the hallucinatory and enlightening moments that are around us at all times through life and death.

I am going to kick myself for the rest of the year on this one. At the LA Art Book Fair, presented by Printed Matter, a few weeks back, we really wanted to buy The Thing Quarerly's Issue n22, featuring a Jux-favorite, John Baldessari. The best part? The Issue came with two standard, Baldessari designed pillowcases. As The Thing notes, "this issue has been designed with the intention that one will sleep with it… or on it." We love print, too.

Juxtapoz is proud to announce the newest addition to our ongoing book series with Gingko Press, "Juxtapoz Psychedelic." The book serves as both a story of our magazine's origins and current state, with Psychedelic Art once again emerging as a fascinating and endlessly experimental genre. From classic names such as Alex Grey and Keiichi Tanaami to a new generation of universe expanders in Killian Eng and cover artist Andy Gillmore, Juxtapoz Psychedelic is one for the visionaries.

One of our favorite purchases from the weekend at the LA Art Book Fair was a copy of Picture Box Inc's (in conjunction with ForYourArt) wonderful book, "In the Good Name of the Company: Artworks and ephemera produced by or in tandem with the Colby Printing Company." Long an iconic visual look of Southern California that has traveled the globe, we have long admired the history of the Colby brand, and have wanted to see a nice comprehensive history of its aesthetic. And now there is one...
