Review:


"Let's be honest. There is little about war that could be construed remotely amusing. But in this book of World War 1 cartoons, there is a most interesting collection of cartoons that are not for the most part of the humorous variety They were used as tools for intimidation, often as well to mock other countries and their leader. Mark Bryant has assembled quite the assortment from both sides of the War, showing how cartoonists viewed War and those who were part of the conflict. . . One of the most interesting aspect of these cartoons is the fact they are basically a history lesson. Much of the War itself we can learn through the vast variety of cartoons, and how the War was and would ultimately play out."

Descripción GRUB STREET, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. In an age before TV and radio the impact and importance of cartoon art was immense, especially when the only sources of information were silent cinema newsreels, posters, newspapers and books - all largely black and white. The cartoon had an immediacy and universal accessibility, giving a message words could not convey. So, not surprisingly, the Great War proved an extraordinarily fertile time for cartoonists. When Zeppelins blackened the sky and U-boats challenged the Royal Navy s supremacy at sea, it was Heath Robinson s crazy cartoons and the antics of Bairnsfather s immortal Old Bill that kept the British upper lip resolutely stiff. And who could take Kasier Bill, the Red Baron and all the mighty Prussians at all seriously when H.M. Bateman and Bert Thomas cocked a snook at all they held dear and the pages of Punch, Bystander, London Opinion, Le Rire, Le Canard Enchaine and such US journals as Puck, Judge and Life kept everyone amused? But not all the cartoons were lighthearted. Indeed, the vicious drawings of Louis Raemakers were powerful enough to call Holland s neutrality into question and hard-hitting cartoons by such committed artists as Dyson, the American Art Young and David Low caused considerable embarrassment to their respective governments. The Central Powers also had a wealth of talent labouring to counteract the Allies propaganda machine and prewar satirical journals such as Kladderadatsch, Simplicissimus and Jugend rose to the challenge, producing some of the best work by such enduring artists as Johnson, Gulbransson and Grosz amongst others. Following on from the success of Grub Street s World War II in Cartoons, also by Mark Bryant, this book examines cartoons from both sides of the conflict, both in colour and black-and-white, and skilfully blends them with text to produce this unique and significant visual history of the First World War.
