Slow Ball Cartoonist takes readers on a journey to an earlier era in America when cartoonists played a pivotal role each day in enabling major daily newspapers to touch the lives of their readers. No American cartoonist was more influential than the Chicago Tribune's John T. McCutcheon-the plainspoken Indiana native and Purdue University graduate whose charming and delightful cartoons graced the pages of the newspaper from 1903 until his retirement in 1946.This book chronicles McCutcheon's adventure-filled life, from his birth on a rural small farm near Lafayette in 1870, to his rise as the "e;Dean of American Cartoonists."e; His famous cartoon, Injun Summer, originally published in 1907, was a celebration of autumn through childlike imagination and made an annual appearance in the Tribune each fall for decades. McCutcheon was the first Tribune staff member to earn the coveted Pulitzer Prize for his poignant 1931 cartoon about a victim of bank failure at the height of the Great Depression. Born with an itch for adventure, McCutcheon served as a World War I correspondent, combat artist, occasional feature writer, portrait artist, and world traveler.While the gangly and tall McCutcheon looked the part of the down-home characters featured in his cartoons, the world-wise flavor of his work influenced public opinion while making readers smile. Hard-hitting and even vicious attacks on public figures were common among his contemporaries; however, McCutcheon's gentle humor provided a change in pace, thus prompting a colleague to borrow a phrase from baseball and anoint him "e;the slow ball cartoonist."e;Slow Ball Cartoonist is a timeless story about a humble man who made the most of his talents and lived life to the fullest, being respectful and fair to all-including the targets of his cartoonist's pen.
Berlin, once perceived of as a puritan city, became in the 1920’s the capital of lust and the decadence of morals.
It is in this capricious town that an exceptional museum entirely dedicated to eroticism opened its doors. Abandoning all aspects of voyeurism, the Erotic Museum in Berlin is a magical place where the imagination of man and the most refined works of art interact.
This remarkable book is comprised of more than 350 rare illustrations, and accompanied by a major study written by the history professor, Hans-Jürgen Döpp. It covers different aspects of erotica throughout time and continents.
