The Flapper Queens: Women Cartoonists of the Jazz Age by Trina Robbins
Fantagraphics celebrates The Flapper Queens in this gorgeous, oversized hardcover collection of full-color comic strips.
In addition to featuring the more well-known cartoonists of the era, such as Ethel Hays, Nell Brinkley, and Virginia Huget, Eisner award-winning Trina Robbins introduces you to three more female cartoonists of the era:
Meet Eleanor Schorer, who started her career in the teens as a flowery art nouveau-Nell Brinkley imitator, and who, by the '20s, was drawing bold and outrageous art deco illustrations; Edith Stevens, who chronicled the fashion trends, hairstyles and social manners of the '20s and '30s in the pages of The Boston Globe; and Virginia Huget, possibly the flappiest of the Flapper Queens, whose girls, with their angular elbows and knees, seemed always to exist in a euphoric state of Charleston.
