Thompson in the 1960s and ’70s, Ralph Steadman provided that era with a signature visual style: satirical, strung out, and suspicious of authority. A new book, Ralph Steadman: A Life in Ink, reveals the U.K.-based artist as more than just a counterculture documentarian. His sketches of London street life show a knack for capturing character in a few quick, precisely chosen pen strokes…. At 84 he still relishes turning his sharp pen on contemporary politicians.” —Smithsonian magazine About the Author Ralph Steadman is a Welsh-born, UK-based artist who has been creating groundbreaking art for over 60 years. He has published many books and has been featured in numerous publications, such as Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, The Guardian, the New York Times, and many more.
