Joseph Pulitzer's NEW YORK WORLD flourished at the turn of the 20th century and out of it grew what we think of as the modern daily paper. It was famous for muckraking and sensationalism but to a contemporary eye what is most striking about the paper (and in particular its Sunday edition) is that it was filled with colourful art - caricatures, full-page cartoons, disaster drawings, fiction illustrations, hand-lettered typography, weird science, halftone photographs, maps and much more. In order to save them from destruction, author Nicholson Baker started buying up newspaper archives from libraries around the world, eventually forming the American Newspaper Repository. Now, with co- author Margaret Brentano he has selected 85 of the finest examples of period reporting, bold and playful graphic design, long-lost comic strips and society pieces from the heyday of THE NEW YORK WORLD for reproduction in this oversized volume.
