Summary "The history of political graphics is really the history of mass graphic reproduction. The whole course of its development is traced here though a vast number of engravings, prints, leaflets, posters, caricatures, and periodical illustrations. The book also examines the changing modes of political graphics over the last five hundred years ... through an analysis of more than four hundred significant examples arranged according to both chronology and theme"--Dustjacket.
