Coconino World - treasure trove of graphics & cartooning
April 15, 2007 7:30 AM   Subscribe

Get lost in the fabulous labyrinth of Coconino World, a mammoth French site with thousands of images from illustrators, graphic artists, and cartoonists ranging from the classics to the contemporary. Some personal favorites: the generous selection of graphics from Simplicissimus, the celebrated German satire magazine published weekly from 1896-1944. James Swinerton's Canyon Kiddies. George Herriman's Krazy Kat. -more-

madamjujujive, you always find amazing stuff! What a great find and treat this site is. Wonderful web wandering. I love Krazy Kat and Ignatz. What a fun-quirky comic. Oooh, PatCab. Thank you.

Wow. I hope you realize what you've just done to my former plans for the day, Madame.

Wonderful! But while we're tipping our hat to MeFi precursors, let's not ignore y2karl's great Krazy Kat post.

Look for a nice sampling of Simplicissimus work in the 9th issue of Comic Art magazine. Care of Coconino Classics of course!
