Description
Like jazz and baseball, cartoons are an indigenous, indelible part of American culture. From the endpapers, featuring oversized reproductions of original panels from Little Nemo in Slumberland and Krazy Kat, to reproductions of unpublished sketches by James Thurber, Richard Felton Outcault, and various Disney artists, this book by the former head curator of prints and photographs at the Library of Congress celebrates 250 years of American cartoonists and cartooning. John Updike, Bill Griffiths, Art Spiegelman, Chris Ware, and other contributors discuss vintage political cartoons, newspaper strips, comic books, and cartoonists like Thomas Nast, Charles Schulz, Winsor McCay, and Jules Feiffer, illuminated with original drawings and sketches—including a post-9/11 napkin drawing by Maria Kalman and Rick Meyerowitz that led to their New Yorker cover "New Yorkistan."
