it was amazing
bookshelves: comics, 1913, forgotten-gems
Read in November, 2008

An giant oversize book of full page reproductions from Pulitzer's turn of the century newspapers. The reproduced pages are full color, and all from the Sunday supplement, so are rife with comics, models, to scale diagrams (including one of various gun diameters used on ships), and illustrated sensational and lurid stories. If any of this sounds interesting, go buy the book asap. You won't be disappointed.
