Product Details


“For nearly a generation now, Barry Blitt has been the sharpest and funniest political artist in the United States.” —David Remnick

“A born wisenheimer… Blitt’s lively gift with turning Washington figures into character studies has helped him become the New Yorker’s preeminent political cover artist—an editorial whiz in deadline watercolor.” —Washington Post

“Blitt’s wry images twist stereotypes and tweak the zeitgeist. They jump from magazine covers headed for the recycling pile to become icons of satire that are welded to our collective memory and to the historical record.” —Matt Wuerker, Politico

“Piercingly funny.” —Fast Company

“By turns fascinating and entertaining… Seeing how this artist turns his ideas into a finished product is one of the most captivating aspects… the beauty of his art is that it rarely needs explaining. You just get it.” —Mother Jones

“Don’t be fooled by the whimsical hand drawn serif of the cover: this work bites. As with the best satirists and commentators, Blitt’s work packs the punch, as demonstrated in these works that straddle more than 25 years.” —AIGA Eye on Design

“Indelible images from one of America’s leading political cartoonists. . . . A treasure trove for fans of the New Yorker, political satire, and graphic design.” —Kirkus (starred review)

“A singular artist.” —Frank Rich
“Clever, incisive, humorous.” —Women’s Wear Daily

“There can be no disputing that Blitt has earned a vaulted place in the pantheon of twenty-first-century political satirists.” —Steven Heller
“If Barry Blitt is anything, it’s brilliantly provocative.” —James Rainey, Los Angeles Times
