The Realist was the legendary satirical magazine published from 1958 to 2001. Founded and edited by the brash provocateur, radical, and prankster Paul Krassner, humor and ridicule were the magazine’s weapons of choice, and Krassner assembled an amazingly eclectic list of contributing writers — including Norman Mailer, Lenny Bruce, Ken Kesey, Joseph Heller, and Woody Allen — who assaulted the American culture. Krassner’s credo was “Irreverence is our only sacred cow,” and in order to practice what he preached, he published some of the most incendiary cartoons that ever appeared in an American magazine. In “Why Doesn’t America Have Its Own Charlie Hebdo? A Brief History of American Satire Since the 1950s,” Time magazine concluded: “Perhaps the satire magazine that most closely resembles Charlie Hebdo in terms of inflammatory imagery was The Realist. The most notorious items from this publication appeared in 1967, including Wally Wood’s ‘Disneyland Memorial Orgy,’ an illustration (by Wally Wood) of classic animated Disney characters engaged in a variety of obscene acts …” The Realist Cartoons collects for the first time the best, the wittiest, and the most provocative drawings that appeared throughout the magazine’s history, including work by R. Crumb, Art Spiegelman, S. Clay Wilson, Jay Lynch, Trina Robbins, Mort Gerberg, Jay Kinney, Richard Guindon, Nicole Hollander, Skip Williamson, and many others.

"A mighty achievement. Thank you."John Lennon"...Unspeakably ambitious, immensely satisfying and indescribably essential."Bernard Perusse Montreal CаzеttеTin Pan Alley existed to make monkey. It organized and rationalized an embryonic music industry for the mutual benefit of these who did the organizing. Tin Pan Alley brought to popular music a collective sense of purpose. Songs were no longer the creative prerogative of a few gifted composers. They could be written to order, in ten minutes, for all combinations of instruments and voices. Its organization included pluggers, copyists, demonstrators and arrangers. Song were written by committee, by number, and by rote. They were "product", and the greater the "product" the greater the profit.
