Web Site Political Cartoons from the Crash to the Millennium
Herb Block's History and Library of Congress exhibition of his political cartoons over 70 years. The political cartoon is not a news story and not an oil portrait. It's essentially a means for poking fun, for puncturing pomposity. Herb Block drew cartoons at the Washington Post as a signed expression of personal opinion. The first page is Block's story on why he drew political cartoons.
