This is the End
The Last Cartoons from The New York Times$ 16.95
“To many Americans, every day was anguish, and the only salve for our pain was Chappatte’s cartoons. They could help us come to terms with what was happening, even, perhaps, help us better understand our anguish. How else do you deal with something as grotesque, ridiculous, and unbelievable, but nonetheless real and consequential?” – From the foreword by Joseph E. Stiglitz, Nobel Prize Laureate

About this book
Patrick Chappatte's eighth—and last!— collection of editorial cartoons published in The New York Times
This is the End offers us a witty, savage, and thought-provoking testimony of a dizzying world, swirling around an oxygen-sucking black hole named Donald Trump. In this era of strongmen, closing borders and selfie narcissists, humor is needed more than ever.
On June 10, 2019, Chappatte posted an essay titled "The End of Political Cartoons at The New York Times," breaking the news that was quickly confirmed by the newspaper. Chappatte's piece, which received worldwide attention and triggered a global discussion about self-censorship by the media in the age of internet angry mobs, appears as an appendix to this cartoon book. It has inspired a TED talk given by Chappatte on July 23, 2019 at TED Summit.Brand: Patrick Chappatte
