The use of editorial cartoons for propaganda purposes was widely popular during World War I. Almost every newspaper of note had their own staff cartoonist who created images (and unfortunately many stereotypes) to support the war effort at home and on the front lines. Period Paper is pleased to offer a collection of historical political editorial cartoons from 1917-1918. This collection includes the works of the era's noted cartoonists and illustrators and includes cartoons from Italian, German, and Dutch newspapers and journals as well as cartoons from the newspapers of the Allied powers. A fascinating look at "The Great War" or more cynically, "The War to End All Wars", though the eyes of these editorial cartoonists.
This piece was illustrated by Williamson, Frank M. Artist signature in print - top right of image.
