Gonzo Art Gets a Second Look at Book Signing

November 09, 1998|BOOTH MOORE

What better way to spend Friday the 13th than with kooky illustrator Ralph Steadman? He will sign copies of his new book, "Gonzo: The Art" (Harcourt Brace), and speak about art, life, politics, wine, gardening and whatever else comes to mind at Every Picture Tells a Story's "Gonzo Party." Limited-edition silk screens of his work will be available for purchase.

When Steadman joined with Hunter S. Thompson to create "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" in 1971, the two launched a new journalistic style that captured the imagination of a generation. "Gonzo: the Art" (with an introduction by Thompson) is the first retrospective of Steadman's illustrations, which over the years have been called brilliant, disgusting, hilarious, messy, stupid and bizarre.

"The Gonzo Party," Friday, 7 p.m. Every Picture Tells a Story, 7525 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles. Free. (323) 932-6070.
