Book Review: Prizewinning Political Cartoons

About the Book
The major awards given to editorial cartoonists recognize a host of techniques within the profession. Celebrating such accomplishments as journalistic merit, defense of basic freedoms, ethical behavior, professional integrity, and successful communication, this collection takes on major political issues. Recipients of the Pulitzer Prize, National Headliner Award, and the Herblock Prize, among others, have contributed their winning pictorial commentary for inclusion in this unique volume.
Also included in this volume is the international Ranan Lurie Political Cartoon Award, which honored its first American competitor, Robert Ariail, for his submission on rising gas prices. Other popular topics range from Barack Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize to Tiger Woods’ recreational activities and the Health Care Reform’s red tape. Lauded for their clarity and skill, the current group of artists has used First Amendment rights to raise awareness of the state of the nation through their own points of view.

My Take on the Book

This book is a great collection of editorial cartoons that have stood out over the past year. As a person that loves cartoons, and especially the wit of editorial cartoons, I was intrigued to read through and gather a keener understanding at what the artists were trying to share in their cartoon with their reader. You get sine great award winning cartoons, some that are in color and some that are in black and white. You will be amazed by the gathering of cartoons in one book, and at the same time you will be laughing throughout the entire book!
