Maybe this #PageFright is a little too frightening considering the subject matter. “To your health, civilization!” toasts Death as he drinks a goblet of blood—a commentary on the horrors of the First World War. It’s in the book “Raemaekers’ Cartoons” by the artist Louis Raemaekers, a Dutch painter and political cartoonist. Raemaekers left the Netherlands for the UK in 1915 to help campaign for the Allied cause. This book was a result of his work with the British propaganda effort, and was translated and distributed in many neutral countries at the time, including the United States ☠️
