Political Cartoon Book Features TT Cartoonist

February 2, 2007

The recently released “The Best Political Cartoons of the Year 2007,” edited by Daryl Cagle and Brian Fairrington, includes work by The Tico Times’ own cartoonist, Arcadio

Esquivel.

Esquivel’s cartoons open the chapter on Palestinian elections, an event Esquivel said was heavily covered by cartoonists worldwide, and particularly in the Middle East.

This is the fourth time his cartoons have been featured in editions of “The Best Political Cartoons,” Esquivel said.

The book highlights 800 of the best cartoons from November 2005 to October 2006, and covers a wide range of political and social themes from the past year, including the war in Iraq, “The Da Vinci Code,” North Korea and illegal immigration.

It features 148 professional cartoonists from all over the world, selected from the Web site www.caglecartoons.com, a service that allows educators, editors and others to purchase cartoons for use in publications and in classrooms worldwide. The paperback is widely available in U.S. bookstores and at www.amazon.com.
