The Complete Far Side - Gary Larson

These two huge volumes collect all of Larson's The Far Side cartoons with a smattering of commentary from the author and editor and letters from the confused. The design is a cross between a high art coffee table book and a family photo album, which adds a lovely touch of farce to a project that incarnates great humor to begin with. I have been a fan of Larson since my first encounter with his comics and was surprised how many cartoons were new to me--a person with a dozen of his collections. This is a great, if expensive, addition for anyone.
