Cartoonist Peter Kuper discussed his creative work in a public talk titled "Speechless" at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, March 25, in the Mumford Room of the Library of Congress. The program was co-sponsored by the Library's Prints and Photographs Division and the Swann Foundation for Caricature and Cartoon.

Kuper, whose work regularly appears in Time magazine, The New York Times and Mad Magazine, took the title for his lecture from his book "Speechless," a survey of his work. His presentation covered the multifaceted creative output of his career--cartoons, comic strips, political illustrations and numerous graphic novels--illustrated with slides and animation drawn from his more than two decades of productivity. He also discussed examples of his comic strips and other drawings for "World War 3 Illustrated" (the political comix journal that he co-founded in 1979), INX (a political illustration group syndicated through the Web), and graphic novels.
