Everyone knows a Feiffer illustration when they see one. His characters leap across the page, each line belying humor and psychological insight. Over Feiffer's prolific 70-year career, his nimble and singular imagination has given us new perspectives as well as biting satires on politics, love, marriage, and religion—alternating with stories imbued with the playful anarchy of a child. Feiffer's varied output includes children's books (The Phantom Tollbooth and Bark, George), plays (Little Murders), movies (Carnal Knowledge and Popeye), and comic strips (most notably in his Pulitzer Prize–winning Village Voice comic strip of 42 years). Out of Line: The Art of Jules Feiffer is the long-awaited illustrated retrospective of Feiffer's celebrated career, providing a revealing glimpse into his creative process and his role as America's foremost Renaissance man of the arts.
