About the Event
Join Coffee House Club in discovering what goes on inside the belly of the media beast: an illustrated story of Op-Ed art.
About the Book
All the Art That’s Fit to Print reveals the true story of the world’s first Op-Ed page, a public platform that—in 1970—prefigured the Internet blogosphere. Not only did the New York Times‘s nonstaff bylines shatter tradition, but the pictures were revolutionary. Unlike anything ever seen in a newspaper, Op-Ed art became a globally influential idiom that reached beyond narrative for metaphor and changed illustration’s very purpose and potential.
Meet the Author
Artist and writer Jerelle Kraus left her 30-year New York Times art director position to write the whistleblowing book, All the Art That’s Fit to Print (And Some That Wasn’t): Inside The New York Times Op-Ed Page.
