Ron Turner founded San Francisco publishing company Last Gasp in the 1970s and has been dedicated to the lowbrow, underground art scene since his youth. He began his business publishing the ecologically-themed comics magazine Slow Death Funnies, followed by the all-female anthology It Ain't Me Babe, Last Gasp soon became a major part of the underground comics/comix movement. Ron Turner s unwavering dedication to the arts has allowed names such as Tim Biskup, Robert Crumb, and Ron English to thrive in the art world, and is because of his integrity and support that many west coast artist are able to be successful in this age.

Robert Williams is Associate Professor of Art History at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He is the author of "Art Theory and Culture in Sixteenth-century Italy: From Techne to Metatechne" (1997).

Format: Paperback
This book is a good introduction to the history of hot rod and custom art (Rat Fink, flying eyballs, pinstriping etc.) and the main three artists of the time. Plenty of colour illustrations and photos. A bit slim, but good all the same.

Big paperback that bends. This is the intro to the nitro glycerine worlds of the big bangers, the men who sculpted the curves ad painstakingly painted their fibreglass and metal art sculptures. Then they stuck a V8 engine in the midst and watched them roar.

Ed Roth, Von Dutch and Robert Williams caught another side of the 60s pounded out in the rockabilly scuzx punk no chorders. They harnessed the feel to their hands and created cartoon vibrant worlds of ho holds barred.

Out popped the art of the working hands man, dipped in grease an forged in fire whilst the minds wandered on THC. Rat Fink, pinstriping, paintings, kit cars, t shirts, cycles were all transformed by their colletive imagination.

Dip in to see the true sounds of the 60's, the hum and throb of customised worlds

Format: Paperback
This is a good book covering the history of Kustom painting covering mostly the American history of early car and cartoon painting.
Its got lots of pictures and good write up.
Not the book to buy if you are wanting to learn how to pinstripe or a reference for designs, but useful to see where it all started off.
