Focus on Cartoonists: Cartoons Magazine Centennial, December 1912

Without an election to cover, with December 1912, Cartoons Magazine made several alterations in format. One was that with potent subject matter reduced, there is a reduction in the average number of cartoons per page, including a significant increase in the number of full page cartoons. Another change, is a huge jump in the number of pages that are mostly prose, further reducing the cartoon count in the magazine.

The positive thing for us though, is that all of these new prose pages are devoted to either biographical information about various cartoonists, or, articles written by those cartoonists, themselves.

Above, a hint of Cartoons Magazine‘s subject matter direction to come — the pot of conflicts, still boiling, that will lead to World War I. Cover art by Charles “Doc” Winner.
