Synopsis : A wild ride to the dark side of Americana. Hunter S. Thompson?s and Ralph Steadman?s most eccentric book
The Curse of Lono is to Hawaii what Fear and Loathing was to Las Vegas: the crazy tales of a journalist?s ?coverage? of a news event that ends up being a wild ride to the dark side of Americana. Originally published in 1983, The Curse of Lono features all of the zany, hallucinogenic wordplay and feral artwork for which the Hunter S. Thompson/Ralph Steadmanduo became known and loved.
This curious book, considered an oddity among Hunter?s ?uvre, was long out of print, prompting collectors to search high and low for an original copy. TASCHEN?s signed, limited edition sold out before the book even hit the stores?this unlimited version, in a different, smaller format, makes The Curse of Lono accessible to everyone.
A wild ride to dark Americana: Hunter S. Thompson?s and Ralph Steadman?s most eccentric book The Curse of Lono is to Hawaii what Fear and Loathing was to Las Vegas: a journalist?s news event ?coverage? that ends up an unclassifiable twist of fiction and reportage, myth and crazed surrealism. Featuring all of the zany, hallucinogenic wordplay and feral artwork for which the Hunter S. Thompson/Ralph Steadman duo became known and loved, the book was at once their exemplary and most eccentric output.
The original edition of The Curse of Lono, published 1983, had long been out of print when TASCHEN brought out a signed, limited re-edition almost a decade ago. The book sold out before it even hit the stores. Now available as a standard TASCHEN edition, this fresh, smaller format, makes the gonzo masterpiece accessible to everyone.
