About this product
- DescriptionThe giants of the American cartoon world, from the post-World War II era to the late 1980s, spring to life in this lavishly illustrated memoir. Award-winning cartoonist Art Wood analyses the distinctive styles, substance, and creations of his fellow cartoonists. Taken from the extensive private collection of Art Wood, these 120 reproductions of original work trace the history and development of cartooning. His warm and telling portraits reveal the real men behind the brush, offering details about the illustrators and their relationships to their creations. Wood offers valuable insights into the cartoon as a legitimate art form. Many important graphic artists began as cartoonists and Wood outlines the achievements of such artists as Daumier, Goya, and Toulouse Latrec, among others.
- Author BiographyBeginning at the age of twelve, Art Wood set out to collect original cartoons from his favourite cartoonists. An enthusiastic young artist, he frequented the office of the Associated Press, the various newspapers in Washington, D.C., and other haunts of his pen-and-ink heroes, begging signed cartoon originals of their work. He amassed one of the largest collections of cartoon art in the world.
