The World on Sunday is the result of a heroic piece of cultural preservation, for Joseph Pulitzer has been dead since 1911, his last newspaper closed in 1931, and physical evidence that the World ever existed has long been limited mostly to microfilm.

Leafing through this special book brought home two things.

One: How grand the Sunday edition of "The World" was a century ago. "The World" was Joseph Pulitzer's newspaper in New York City. In 1898 Pulitzer bought a new high-speed color printing press, and he employed first-class artists and graphic designers to make the most of the press's four-color printing capabilities. Today there are no newspapers and few magazines as sumptuously illustrated as was the Sunday "World" from 1898 to 1911, the span covered by this book.

Two: How phenomenally negligent we are about preserving the intellectual and artistic heritage from our recent past. This book exists only because of the efforts of Nicholson Baker and his wife Margaret Brentano to save the last known run of the New York World from de-acquisition by an institutional library and sale for pulp or cannibalization by dealers. They purchased the bound volumes containing the original newspapers from The British Library, after even the Library of Congress and the New York Public Library had disposed of their sets. (In 2003, those bound volumes were transferred to Duke University.) As a society we devote considerable resources to excavating and preserving the midden piles of Anasazi Indians and Sumerians, but we cavalierly consign some of the richest (in terms of informational and aesthetic content) artifacts of our own century-old civilization to the scrap dealers.

THE WORLD ON SUNDAY contains 64 full-color two-page spreads from the bound volumes that once were in the British Library and now reside at Duke. Some of the illustrations and graphics are nigh breath-taking. The texts include news, contemporary commentary, humor, and advertisements. Collectively they are a unique window on life in the United States - and especially New York City - at the turn of the last century. Nicholson Baker contributes a short informative introduction and Margaret Brentano adds similarly brief but informative remarks to each page of newspaper reproductions. The book is large-format (though only one-third the size of the original newspaper sheets) and intelligently and handsomely put together. It too is worthy of a library.

A beautiful book, simply beautiful. Baker and his wife have done a great service in preserving the actual physical copies of one of America's great but long forgotten, journalistic enterprises. How remarkable these Sunday newspapers were, including in the amazingly high quality of the printing and presentation. What a cultural force they were! And we wouldn;t know it if Baker hadn't gone to the enormous effort of saving these publications in their original form.

I am a fan of the "Golden Age" of American Comics which ran from the late 1930's through the 1940's. "The World on Sunday" is a compilation of some of the best graphic art that appeared in Joseph Pulitzer's "The World" from 1898 to 1911. Most fans of American comic book history know about the history of the early American comic strips of this period. The creators of the Golden Age undoubtedly were influenced by these early comic strips. However, they always were profoundly influed by the rich visual art work that came out in the newspapers of the era. "The World on Sunday" is beautifully produced and is a must purchase for all those interested in American popular culture. Finally, I would also recommend Cordula Lebeck's "Kiosk". In this volume, Lebeck follows the development of popular journalism into the age of photography in the 1930's.

Great book that is just the right oversize to allow you to go take in the physical extent of the graphics and go back to the days of Pulitzer and Hearst. Really fun to look through at random or study. In case you just assume tjat great media graphics were invented sometime in the post-World-War II era, this serves as a welcome and refreshing jolt showing you literally how wrong you are to think so.

This book celebrates one of the high points in American popular culture. In the late 1800's, Joseph Pulitzer, publisher of the New York World, purchased the first great high quality color printer for newspapers. He then used it to publish beautiful color graphics every Sunday. This is both great art and great entertainment. But the story of how the author Nicholson Baker and his wife, Margaret Brentano, tracked down the last surviving complete collection of this work just before it was to be lost forever is just as thrilling. This is an exquisite book that is the product of great work by great people. Get ready to enjoy a true treasure.

I'm working on a Joseph Pulitzer film project, and this is a superb volume of illustrations from his wildly successful newspaper, The World. Very helpful. And a treat.
