Synopses & Reviews
David Horsey has won himself a couple of nice bookends: a Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning in 1999; a second Pulitzer in 2003. And now here's a book that chronicles the four world-changing years in-between. From Hanging Chad to Baghdad
is the fifth collection of Horsey's cartoons from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer
. The book's 192 pages include 24 in full color, plus excerpts from Horsey's interview on NPR's Fresh Air
with Terry Gross.
Few four-year periods have been more eventful. And few commentators have made sense of it all with as much perception, wit, and artistry as David Horsey. From Enron to Afghanistan, from Homeland Security to Hollywood, and of course, from hanging chad to Baghdad, Horsey has illuminated the news for readers in Seattle and in nearly 250 newspapers across the nation.
If two Pulitzers aren't enough proof of how good David Horsey is, this book should be convincing. It's a virtuoso performance by the hottest editorial cartoonist in America.
Featured on the editorial pages of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and syndicated to 250 newspapers across the nation, David Horsey's cartoons deliver social and political commentary with a punch. This collection of more than 150 editorial cartoons from the 2003 Pulitzer Prize winner chronicles recent events in America and the world. The recurring character in this collection is George W. Bush. Horsey's cartoons track his rise from a candidate who won the White House without winning the most votes to a commander-in-chief who went to war in spite of worldwide protest. From Hanging Chad to Baghdad features the rich almost voluptuous black-and-white imagery that has made Horsey famous, as well as 24 color pages that show off the celebrated editorial cartoonist's skill at an extended comic form.
