The 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 analyzes the distinctive styles, substance, and creations of his fellow cartoonists. Taken from the extensive private collection of Art Wood, the more than 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. He traces the development of the American version of the cartoon, from its colonial days and Benjamin Franklin, through to the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
