Herblock: The Life and Works of the Great Political Cartoonist

$ 35.00

Designed to accompany an exhibit at the Library of Congress, the book briefly outlines the artist's career and its historical context, starting with Herbert Block's early career during FDR's term. His first Pulitzer, in 1941, earned him independence when he came under editorial fire for advocating U.S. entry into WWII. After his own military service, he joined the Washington Post, an association that lasted until his death in 2001. The bulk of the book showcases highlights of the artist's seven-decade career. Haynes Johnson provides a reverent and insightful biography, while Harry Katz places Herblock and his work in context.

Hardcover, 9.4" x 11.3"; 304 pages; DVD.
