Edmund Sullivan






Edmund Sullivan was born in London in 1869 and died in 1933.
After news of German atrocities in Belgium and the execution of Edith Cavell, Sullivan produced a book of drawings called The Kaiser's Garland (1915). This book was used as part of the First World War propaganda campaign against Germany.

Does any one know the significance/meaning of the hebrew (?) on the cloud in the second drawing?

Extraordinary... Never seen this stuff before.
Anti-German propaganda drawn in the manner of Holbein - a German.
I'm intrigued by the top one. Kaiser Bill has one claw-like arm. It was mostly unknown to his contemporaries - but caused much grief to the man himself - that he did have a 'withered' claw-arm.

Un capo Edmundo. Hace poco estuve viendo "Los desastres de la guerra". Tienen que ver con esto.
