He worked under numerous names—from Kremos to Niso to Nys O’Ramp—but he occupies a singular space as Italy’s cartooning Casanova, and  he finally gets his due in this new two volume set from Lost Art Books. From the mid-1940s through the early 1960s, Niso Ramponi’s work was everywhere, lending his talents to collaborations with friend Federico Fellini in Italy’s animation industry to drawing newspaper strips to creating movie posters for Walt Disney. His work was ubiquitous in weekly magazines like il Travaso, for which he drew some of the world’s prettiest “good girl” gag cartoons and covers for over a decade. Kremos: The Lost Art of Niso Ramponi Vol. 1 collects over 200 of his bodacious black & white cartoons and illustrations when this maverick artist was at the height of his powers.
