5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy tribute to a truly great cartoonist, December 13, 2009
This review is from: Herblock: The Life and Works of the Great Political Cartoonist (Hardcover)
Herblock: The Life and Work of the Great Political Cartoonist is a representative compendium of the satirical political cartoons of Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Herbert Lawrence Block (1909-2001), a.k.a. "Herblock", who lengthy career spanned nearly three-quarters of a century and the careers of thirteen American presidents. 256 classic cartoons, categorized by era and enhanced with accompanying text concerning the relevant issues of the day that the cartoon drew pointed attention to, fill this powerful survey - which is further enhanced by an accompanying DVD of more than 18,000 cartoons (no less than the majority of Herblock's professional work)! From a cartoon of a man crying "Fire!" and trying to put out the Statue of Liberty's torch (in response to the civil liberties crackdown of the Red Scare in 1949), to an image of a naked Nixon using only an image of the globe to cover himself (a twist on "the emperor has no clothes"), to a thief's "getaway care" driven by the Supreme Court representing the metaphorical theft of the 2000 presidential election (which was ultimately decided by a Supreme Court decision), Herblock does not shy away from hot button topics or controversy. A worthy tribute to a truly great cartoonist, Herblock is enthusiastically recommended to public and privately library collections, and to anyone who enjoys political cartoons.
