Cartoon America, Comic Art in The Library of Congres
KATZ, Harry (editor).
New York: Harry N. Abrams, 2006. First edition. Hardcover. A terrific look at the wide ranging collection of comic art held in the collection of the Library of Congress with numerous essays and numerous color illustrations. A fine and tight copy in a fine dust jacket. A very good reference book.
Cartoon America and its accompanying brochure are funded through the generous support of the Caroline and Erwin Swann Memorial Foundation for Caricature and Cartoon. The Art Wood Collection of Cartoon and Caricature came to the Library through a gift-purchase agreement made possible in part by a generous contribution from H. Fred Krimendahl II, a member of the Library’s Madison Council and the generosity of James Arthur Wood, Jr., who has continued to enhance the collection with annual gifts. The companion volume to the exhibition, also entitled Cartoon America: Comic Art in the Library of Congress (Abrams, 2006) features an essay by Art Wood that highlights his collection as well as the wealth of related Library holdings.
