Barry Blitt with Luke Burbank
Award-winning political cartoonist Barry Blitt is here with his much-awaited first book, simply titled Blitt (Riverhead). Almost anyone who so much as passes a newstand, much less delves into The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, or New York Times will recognize his work. Donald Trump has been lending himself to a small cottage industry of smart, pithy, on-target cartoon barbs. This evening of conversation, with Luke Burbank, host of public radio’s ‘Live Wire Radio,’ and images, should be a little light in a dark time.
“For nearly a generation now, Barry Blitt has been the sharpest and funniest political artist in the United States.” —David Remnick.
“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.
