Cleverly Designed Political Cartoons Then And Now

From Zazzle

You've probably seen this Joe Heller cartoon already and thought, wow, that's clever.  It reads very differently from top down to bottom up.

But while I was looking through the new books at the UAA Library I found this political cartoon that had a similar up and down (though visual not verbal) aspect from the 1860s.

This comes from the book The Comic Art Of War:  A Critical Study of Military Cartoons, 1805 - 2015 with a Guide to Artists by Christina M. Knopf.
