9780231138253: All the Art That's Fit to Print (And Some That Wasn't): Inside The New York Times Op-Ed Page

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.

Jerelle Kraus, whose thirteen-year tenure as Op-Ed art director far exceeds that of any other art director or editor, unveils a riveting account of working at the Times. Her insider anecdotes include the reasons why artist Saul Steinberg hated the Times, why editor Howell Raines stopped the presses to kill a feature by Doonesbury's Garry Trudeau, and why reporter Syd Schanburg whose story was told in the movie The Killing Fields stated that he would travel anywhere to see Kissinger hanged, as well as Kraus's tale of surviving two and a half hours alone with the dethroned peerless outlaw, Richard Nixon.

All the Art features a satiric portrayal of John McCain, a classic cartoon of Barack Obama by Jules Feiffer, and a drawing of Hillary Clinton and Obama by Barry Blitt. But when Frank Rich wrote a column discussing Hillary Clinton exclusively, the Times refused to allow Blitt to portray her. Nearly any notion is palatable in prose, yet editors perceive pictures as a far greater threat. Confucius underestimated the number of words an image is worth; the thousand-fold power of a picture is also its curse.

Op-Ed's subject is the world, and its illustrations are created by the world's finest graphic artists. The 142 artists whose work appears in this book hail from thirty nations and five continents, and their 324 pictures-gleaned from a total of 30,000-reflect artists' common drive to communicate their creative visions and to stir our vibrant cultural-political pot.

About the Author:

Jerelle Kraus is the award-winning art director whose thirty-year tenure at the New York Times includes a record thirteen years at Op-Ed. She also worked as an art director at Time and as the art director of Ramparts magazine and of Francis Ford Coppola's City magazine.

The New Yorker and the New York Times Magazine have published Kraus's writing, including an "On Language" column that subbed for William Safire. Fluent in four languages, she was educated at Swarthmore and Pomona colleges and at l'École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. She received an MA from the University of California, Berkeley, and a Fulbright scholarship to Munich. Her Web site is jerellekraus.com.

Review:

A chronicle of late twentieth-century history, replete with sardonic images of tyrants and visual commentaries on the fall of communism; the works of Eastern Europeans who fled totalitarian regimes are some of the most challenging and resonant. In this overflowing treasure chest of ideas, politics and cultural critiques, Kraus proves that 'art is dangerous' and sometimes necessarily so. (Publishers Weekly)

Readers will be entertained and come away with a deeper appreciation of the power of illustration. (Library Journal)

Worth the price of the book is Kraus's 2 1/2-hour encounter with former President Richard Nixon. (History Wire)

An intensely personal history of the [op-ed] page as it weathered tempests and tinpot tyrannies at the Times. (Columbia Journalism Review)

As a memoir, Kraus's work provides colorful, intimate, and occasionally searing portraits of several high-ranking Times executives. (Michael Socolow JHistory)

Part memoir, part art book, and part journalism history. But all parts are exemplary. (Beth Haller American Journalism)

An excellent reminder of the power of editorial illustration. These images do so much more than break up the gray space of columns of text. This book gives life to an underappreciated, and often unexamined, form of visual journalism. (Jounralism)

[This] provocative book examines the images that shattered the conventions of newspaper imagery. (Huffington Post)
