Editorial cartoons are unlike any other form of commentary. For over 500 years the art of political cartoons has been used to convey social and political messages through the use of images familiar to all of the people in a society.
Visual in nature, cartoons highlight minute details to make a specific point. With simple pen strokes, they provide a commentary in ways that eludes written or spoken reporting, a truly unique historical perspective—entertaining, yet clever, and insightful. In US, this powerful form of art has always reflected key moments in history.
