Lono is back

Hunter S. Thompson's and Ralph Steadman's most eccentric book

The Curse of Lono

$ 2,000

No one expected TASCHEN’s re-edition of The Curse of Lono to end up being Hunter S. Thompson’s swan song, and his sudden death the month before its release made the event a bittersweet one.

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, Curse features all of the zany, hallucinogenic wordplay and feral artwork for which the Hunter S. Thompson/Ralph Steadman duo became known and loved. This curious book, considered an oddity among Hunter`s œuvre, has been long out of print, prompting collectors to search high and low for an original copy. Resurrected by TASCHEN in a bigger size with splendid, full-color illustrations, The Curse of Lono is now available in a special 1,000-copy edition, numbered and hand-signed by Thompson and Steadman.

Limited edition of 1,000 signed copies
  • "Book publishers TASCHEN said they had no idea that their re-issue of The Curse of Lono would end up being Hunter S. Thompson's swan song, but this signed limited edition is exactly that. (...) This curious book, considered an oddity among Hunter's oeuvre, has been long out of print, prompting collectors to search high and low for an original copy."
