Puck : What Fools These Mortals Be

Various
Various
A lavish coffee table book devoted to the most important political satire and cartoon magazine in American history. Published from 1877 to 1918, Puck was regularly a major political battleground and is credited with single-handedly thwarting the third-term ambitions of Ulysses Grant in 1880 and electing Grover Cleveland to the presidency in 1884. 
 
Puck did it with art–lavish, colour, full-page and two-page centre-spread cartoons. It was the first American magazine to publish colour lithographs on a weekly basis and, for nearly forty years, was a training ground and showcase for some of the country’s most talented cartoonists, led by its co-founder, Joseph Keppler. This retrospective contains nearly 300 full-colour plates. Written by Michael Alexander Kahn and Richard Samuel West , cover artwork from Joseph Keppler and featuring a foreword by Bill Watterson, of Calvin & Hobbes fame!
