Puck Featured on C-SPAN

On Sunday, April 29, C-SPAN3 aired a special 22-minute interview with What Fools These Mortals Be! The Story of Puck co-author Michael Alexander Kahn. The topic of conversation was American politics through the eyes of cartoonists who contributed to Puck magazine in the late 19th and early 20th century. If you’ve been with us for a while, then you know that we published What Fools These Mortals Be!, an Eisner Award-nominated coffee table book in 2014 and we are thrilled to see it getting continued well-deserved attention! The whole segment is now archived at cspan.org, but we’ve linked it here for you for easy access!
