BICLM Zoom Background Series: George Herriman’s Krazy Kat

George Herriman’s masterful creation, Krazy Kat, pushed the boundaries of language, abstraction, gender and philosophy in newspaper comics from 1913-1944.  Set in a surreal version of Coconino County, Arizona, where Herriman vacationed, we thought there could be no better candidate for our second installment of BICLM Zoom Backgrounds than Krazy Kat‘s scratchy, angular, and strangely serene locale.

  1. These are perfect – using the last one gratefully – but why does the date clash with that on the full page (which is July 5th)?
