“Life Under the Jolly Roger is a...sophisticated and nuanced take on pirate history and myth."

 

“...I take his point that their rebellion and their egalitarian authority structures, not to mention their lackadaisical attitudes toward work, merit serious consideration.

Not to say that I want to outfit myself in a pirate hat and shirt (not for political reasons, anyway), but with (Gabriel) Kuhn’s help I have a much better idea of who the pirates really were, and hope to read more about them someday. If you’re someone whose knowledge of pirates stops with Errol Flynn and Jack Sparrow but you wanted to learn more, Life Under the Jolly Roger will be just the grog you’re thirsting for."—JM Hielkema, The Tiger Manifesto

Peter Kuper's 1990 Donald Trump Cartoon titled "The Wall"

 

For your enjoyment we've excerpted a 12 page 1990 cartoon by Peter Kuper (of MAD Magazine, SPY vs SPY fame) from his book Drawn to New York titled "The Wall" which sadly seems rather prescient at this point...

"Kuper is extraordinary, a one-of-a-kind talent, and like the city it chronicles, Drawn to New York is beautiful, mutinous, kaleidoscopic, and essential." —Junot Díaz, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
