Robert Crumb - A Short History of America

"Comic book artist and illustrator Robert Crumb created this series of 12 drawn panels in 1973 as a comment on what was happening to the American landscape. This 12-panel poster shows how the built environment has changed throughout the decades of American life. The 12 panels show the evolution of a patch of American countryside from bucolic nature to train stop, from homestead to small town, and finally to an electrified, crowded contemporary scene."
