Der Spiegel Art

What news junkie doesn't love a good political cartoon? Who can resist how the witty spare lines brighten a page with a light-hearted appreciation for pictures amid all that worldly, regimented text? How effortless is the wry giggle it ellicits from behind the curtain of gray newspaper pages?

Der Spiegel celebrates an especially well-graced face with an
exhibition at the Museum of American Illustration this month. If, like me, you're not in New York, check out the selected gallery online, here.
