Old Cartooning Lesson Book - The Boy & Girl Cartoonist

Old Cartooning Lesson Book - The Boy & Girl Cartoonist

This vintage paperback book has 68 Complete Lessons in Cartooning. The cover (the front and back are the same) shows a group of comic character kids gathering around a fence to watch a would-be artist at work. The pages have lesson blocks with a series of sketches and a blank area for practicing. It touches on all of the basics including facial feature, anatomy, perspective, shadows and lettering and then touches on specifics like animals, politicians, and other subjects of cartooning satire. It was written by Chas. H. Kuhn with a 1936 copyright by The Saalfield Publishing Co. - Publishers for the Children.

It measures about 10 ½" by 12 3/8" and is fair condition. The inside pages are basically good with light edge and corner wear. Many of the pages have been practiced on (drawn on) with pencil but there are several that are waiting for new talent. The cover has seen better days. It has soiling and general edge wear plus some writing, in ink, on the front. The top right corner has been gnawed on and there is a circle gnawed out of the top center of the cover, through to the first couple of pages. Still, it is a great guide to cartooning.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
