    1. There's no description here, so just to briefly explain: This book contains excerpts from the first three issues of Art Spiegelman's RAW magazine, which was sort of an early-80s successor to the underground comix anthologies of the 70s (ie Arcade), but a bit more arty/avante-garde-ish.RAW (based in Soho) employed a similar aesthetic to the downtown Manhattan music and film scenes of the late 70s/early 80s, and as a big fan of that era this was a very exciting discovery for me.
