On the Money: Cartoons for The New Yorker From the Melvin R. Seiden Collection

I meant to blog this around the time it actually was at the Morgan Library & Museum. Sorry. The cartoons, which are quite good, are all about the economic problems in the Depression era. Pretend you don't know the date and just about every one could apply to today's economic situation. Seeing "actual" comics is always cool as you can examine the line work and view the mistakes. I'm not complaining about the digital age, but the next generation isn't going to be able to look back and see examples of a comic unfolding on a page (paper? what's that?). There is a lot to learn from such images and a shame people won't be able to see the process.
