Cartoon America: Comic Art in the Lib
By (author) Harry Ed Katz
The Library of Congress encompasses virtually the entire history and scope of comic art, including editorial cartoons, caricatures, comic strips, animation and illustration. "Cartoon America" portrays a common ground that we all can appreciate and learn from. Caricatures and cartoons often depict the principal events and figures of the day. Like jazz and baseball, they are an indelible and indigenous part of American culture. In the best hands, they become topical and timeless, unique and universal. "Cartoon America" speaks eloquently of the US nation's creativity and resilience, its desire to educate and entertain, laugh at its quirks and foibles and challenge its political leaders and public figures to do better. The book contains a veritable "who's who" of illustration greats and includes much original art.
