A sweeping and timely career retrospective of one of the most incendiary political cartoonists in the first half of the 20th century. To Laugh That We May Not Weep reprints over 800 of Art Young's timeless and devastating cartoons and illustrations, many reproduced from original artwork, to create a fresh portrait of this towering figure of cartooning and politics. With essays by Art Spiegelman, Justin Green and others along with a biographical overview of Young's life, To Laugh That We May Not Weep is a long awaited tribute to one of the great lost cartoonists whose work is as relevant, and necessary, in the 21st century as it was in its own time.
