It's voting day in the States, so here is some political humor ... from 42 years ago.
This is CARICATOUR Magazine #3, a short-lived satirical magazine published by Art Pottier. This is issue is dated July 1968. It's copyright 1968 by Contemporary Publications, Inc.
A small mimeographed slip of paper was tucked into the magazine, and fell out while scanning.
It reads (typos and all):
THE ENCLOSED ISSUE OF CARICATOUR WAS PREPARED BEFORE THE TRAGIC ASSASINATION OF ROBERT F. KENNEDY. WE HOPE OUR READERS WILL UNDERSTAND THAT MUCH OF THE CONTENT OF THIS ISSUE WHICH NOW SEEM SO INAPPROPIATE WAS DONE IN THE SPIRIT OF SATIRE WHICH PERTAINED THE THEN CURRENT SITUATION.
I've posted the first issue of CARICATOUR in its entirety on the blog: part one is here and part two is here.
The fact that there's an ad for the East Village Other suggests that CARICATOUR may have had NYC-based distribution.
The cartoonists who were part of this were top notch: Charlie Rodrigues, Sid Harris, Ed Arno editorial cartoonist Don Hesse, Herbert Goldberg, Franchioni, Feiffer, Porges, Lugoze, Vic Martin, Nitka, and Ed Fisher.
This is the first of 2 parts. My thanks to the one and only cartoonist extraordinaire Don Orehek for this copy of CARICATOUR.
