Quebec Carto-Caricatures (launch)

Just a quick note to inform you that, being of potentially unsound mind, I’ve shared my collection of Quebec cartoons over at a new blog called “Québec Carto-Caricatures.” It includes both symbolic (for example, a dog labelled “Quebec”) and cartographic (for example, the outline of Quebec) caricatures and cartoons from animation, newspapers, blogs, government publications, flyers, and other locations as I find them. I’d appreciate any additional contributions that interested parties might care to share, but for less interested parties, I offer a swipes file of sorts:

First, we see members of the 1960s Anglophone community jumping on a table to avoid the mouse of “separatism.”



Berthio (c. 1964-1967) in The Carnivalization of Politics by Raymond Morris (page 19)

In 2012, we see the Francophone figure (if his fleur-de-lys sweater is any indication) up on a table avoiding the “Anglais” mouse.

As we have seen before, the more things change…

Er, something about the definition of “revolution” being about “going around and around.”
