Thomas Nast: Political Cartoonist (Spotlight
Thomas Nast was an ordinary child with an extraordinary talent. Never one for writing or arithmetic, his immigrant parents feared he would not even get through school with passing grades. Then they discovered an artist lived within him, and enrolled him in art school. There, he honed his talent until he was fifteen years old and needed to work to support himself and his family. It was then he walked into the offices of Frank Leslie’s Illustrated Newspaper and asked for a job. A storied career was had just begun.In the mid-nineteenth century, America was a land full of newly arrived immigrants coming to New York City to work and live. Many did not know how to read or write English. Political cartoons were a very big and powerful way to reach out to people and express ideas and beliefs about the government and the way of the world. Thomas Nast became a voice of justice through his political cartoons. He became famous for his depictions of the Civil War, his political party illustrations, and even helped develop the now-popular image of jolly old Saint Nick. But his biggest battle came in his own hometown, where he decided to go up against William “Boss” Tweed and his Tammany Hall collaborators—notoriously crooked leaders of New York City, bribing and laundering money into t...

Thomas Nast: Political Cartoonist and 'President Maker'
Thomas Nast: Political Cartoonist and 'President
Thomas Nast has been called the greatest political cartoonist of all time. He was much more than that. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant attributed his presidential victory in the 1868 campaign "to the sword of (Indian-fighting Gen. Phil) Sheridan and the pencil of Nast." Nast could smite the most powerful titans with a single stroke of that pencil. New York's "Boss" Tweed would attest to this. He went to prison and died there because of Nast. So would Horace Greeley who saw his efforts to ascend the presidency flustered by Nast and his vituperative cartoons. But above his political tour de force, Nast gave us four memorable and immortal images: the Democratic donkey, the Republican elephant, Santa Claus and Uncle Sam.

The Night Before Christmas
The Night Before
A truly amazing set of 89 illustrations from 21 different vintage editions of "The Night Before Christmas," set to the original text from the Dec 23, 1823 Troy Sentinel. The editions range from 1840 to 1918, and a reference list collects the illustrations by artists such as: Thomas Nast, Margaret Evans Price, Sarah Noble Ives, W.W. Denslow, Gladys Hall, Jesse Wilcox Smith, F.J.E., Eleanora Madsen, A.E. Kennedy, John R. Neill, Alfred Fredericks, William T. Smedley Hugo von Hofsten and Howard E. Altemus. A biography of Henry Livingston tells the story of Henry and the quest of the Livingston family to prove Henry's authorship, in language suitable for reading to children.This new edition celebrates the two year long research of Professor Emeritus MacDonald Jackson, who investigated the conflicting claims of Clement Moore and Henry Livingston using statistical analysis. By delving deep into the numbers that can be pulled out of the unconscious characteristics of a writer's style, such as frequency of words and even how the tongue and lips move, Jackson was able to conclude that the style of "The Night Before Christmas" matches the style of Henry Livingston, rather than that of Clement Moore.
