About this title

Synopsis:

The Lincoln images, originally appearing in such publications as Budget of Fun, Comic Monthly, New York Illustrated News, Phunny Phellow, Southern Punch, and Yankee Notions, significantly expand our understanding of the evolution of public opinion toward Lincoln, the complex dynamics of Civil War, popular art and culture, the media, political caricature, and presidential politics.

Lincoln, appealed to illustrators because of his distinctive physical features. (One could scarcely conceive of a similar book on James Buchanan, his immediate predecessor.) Despite ever-improving techniques, Lincoln pictorial prominence competed favorably with any succeeding president in the nineteenth century.

About the Author:

Gary L. Bunker is Professor Emeritus of psychology at Brigham Young University. He has co-authored one other volume on nineteenth-century graphic images and published articles on political caricature and popular art in such journals as American Jewish History, Journal of the Abraham Lincoln Association, and Journal of Women's History.
