Before writing his first children’s book "And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street", published in 1937, Geisel worked as a political cartoonist, an advertising illustrator, and a documentary filmmaker. Checker collects some of the rarer, never before published cartoons created by Geisel. Volume 2 includes magazine and book illustrations, advertising illustrations, and other rare pieces.

War propaganda creeps the crap out of me, particularly the dehumanizing depictions of the enemy variant that Geisel comes up with - a common thing for its time, and seen regularly in satire now - but I can see well indeed why his was effective from this. Now I just need to bleach my brain a bit, have a cuppa, and read some of his more modern material.
