5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful, well-researched book. Perfect balance of the artwork and the artist's story behind the artwork., November 5, 2013

This review is from: VIP: The Mad World of Virgil Partch (Hardcover)
It's wonderful.
Well done, Mr. Barli. This is a long overdue study and tribute. You managed to present decades of work in a book where longtime fans can find something new, and first-time readers can quickly appreciate the significance (and fun!) of Partch's work. Bravo!

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and well done, November 1, 2013

This review is from: VIP: The Mad World of Virgil Partch (Hardcover)
I had no idea Partch had such an interesting life - especially the early parts. The book includes a good representation of his cartoons, including some not available in any published collections. Also includes high resolution scans of preliminary sketches, offhand caricatures, etc. The biographic account is enlivened by sardonic comments from VIP himself and interesting photographs of Partch through his life and career. It was worth waiting for the long-delayed publication (I pre-ordered a year ago). I am now inspired to collect any old VIP cartoon books I don't already have, and re-watch Duck Pimples, the wonderfully zany Donald Duck short co-authored by VIP and Dick Shaw.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun read, November 5, 2013

This review is from: VIP: The Mad World of Virgil Partch (Hardcover)
I like VIP cartoons but this book is not quite what I expected. I grew up in the 1940s/50s and read many VIP cartoons when they first came out. While I enjoy the cartoons I was not particularly interested in the biographical data included in the book. While it is true that Partch had an interesting life I was somewhat disappointed that so much of the book was taken up with his biography. Still, the book includes enough of his cartoons to make it worth the buy. I have a number of his old "pocket-size" cartoon books and still enjoy thumbing through them. If you have never heard of "VIP" his cartoons will probably surprise you with their off-the-wall flavor. If you know his work they you will enjoy this book.
