Description

The first and only collection of Held's popular 1920s woodcut-style cartoons.

This hardcover collection published in 1931, has been reprinted by Dover and POD, but this original printing has the best reproduction by far.

In addition to his archetypical flapper illustrations, Held also made nostalgic cartoons recalling turn-of-the-century themes, mores, and songs (think of Chuck Jones' "The Dover Boys at Pimento University" short).

Held used linocuts and drawn cartoons executed in a 19th-century woodcut style. From 1925 to 1932, these woodcut-style cartoons and faux maps were published frequently in The New Yorker.
