Bush. The contributors assess the state of caricature at a moment when traditional outlets for the political cartoonist’s art—particularly the daily newspaper—face an uncertain economic future, and technological change is radically transforming the media landscape that has sustained journalistic caricature for almost two centuries.

Along with the cartoons featured in the book (most of which appear in color), the essays illuminate the development of caricature as a journalistic form, its changing visual languages, and its effectiveness in commenting on politics and instigating debate and dissent. Published in connection with the exhibition of the same name at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, Lines of Attack features not only the satirical art of Daumier and his contemporaries, but also images by some of the most provocative political cartoonists working in the United States and Great Britain today: artists including Steve Bell, Steve Brodner, Joe Ciardiello, Pat Oliphant, Gerald Scarfe, Edward Sorel, Tom Tomorrow, and Garry Trudeau.ContributorsKatherine ArpenAlexis ClarkAlison Hafera CoxKatherine de Vos DevineNeil McWilliamPublication of the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University
