A hardcover book called “Cartoon America: Comic Art in the Library of Congress” will be published this November by Harry N. Abrams Inc.
The cover of the 324-page volume includes a shot of Mount Rushmore, but the sculpted dignitaries pictured are Charlie Brown, Ignatz the mouse (from “Krazy Kat”), Zippy the Pinhead, and Popeye.
“Cartoon America” — edited by curator and comics historian Harry Katz — also spotlights the work of Thomas Nast, Winsor McCay, Jules Feiffer, and many other creators.
The Library of Congress’ cartoon holdings include original art from the collection of Art Wood.
