The World on Sunday : graphic art in Joseph Pulitzer's newspaper (1898-1911) by Nicholson Baker( Book )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 848 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joseph Pulitzer's New York World flourished at the turn of the twentieth century, and out of it grew what we think of as the modern daily paper. The World was famous for muckraking and sensationalism, but to a contemporary eye what is most striking about the paper (and in particular its Sunday edition) is that it was filled with colorful art--caricatures, full-page cartoons, disaster drawings, fiction illustrations, hand-lettered typography, weird science, halftone photographs, maps, and more. Co-authors Baker and Brentano have selected 85 of the finest examples of period reporting, bold and playful graphic design, long-lost comic strips, and society pieces from the heyday of the New York World for reproduction in this delightful, oversized volume. Baker's introductory essay argues the significance and beauty of Pulitzer's paper, and Brentano's detailed captions and notes accompany the colorful reproductions throughout.--From publisher description

Book Description: The story of Pulitzer, American journalist and publisher, who created along with William Randolph Hearst a new and controversial type of journalism. Pulitzer saw himself as a crusader on the side of people and a spokesman for democracy. He supported labor, attacked trusts and monopolies, and revealed political corruption. When journalism was not a respectable way of earning one's living, Pulitzer was committed to raising the standards of the profession. He was the founder of Pulitzer Prizes, today considered to be the most prestigious prize in American journalism

Pulitzer by W. A Swanberg( Book )

From the Blurb: This is the life-size portrait of a man of genius and an eccentric of unique proportions. Joseph Pulitzer revolutionized American journalism and exerted a powerful, progressive effect on American life. He did this by the force of a personality that was as admirable as it was outrageous. A Hungarian by birth, Joseph Pulitzer served briefly in the Civil War and then began his newspaper career in St. Louis. He started out penniless; when he died in 1911, he had made a great fortune, from the St. Louis Post-dispatch and the New York World (morning and evening). The Pulitzer newspapers-particularly the morning World-achieved a rare combination of wide popular appeal, brilliant and accurate reporting, and an enlightened and courageous editorial policy. Through his papers Pulitzer played an important role in American politics as he fought battle after battle with a reformer's zeal and a realist's shrewdness. Mr. Swanberg accomplishes three difficult things in Pulitzer. He vividly renders the social and political background. He shows precisely how Pulitzer made the World a great paper; how he fought his competitors, and how he affected the nation's affairs. The record, in Mr. Swanberg's hands, becomes an exciting, turbulent story. The third and most difficult accomplishment is the portrait of Joseph Pulitzer. A man of intellect and cultivation, Pulitzer was stricken in mid-career both by blindness and a nervous malady. The clink of a spoon at dinner, or a harsh voice, would cause him to explode in agony. He traveled constantly, usually on his yacht-"fleeing his nerves"--Accompanied by six male secretaries who had to be prepared to report on the latest art show in London or to discuss an obscure point in European history. Often separated from his wife by his travels, he was devoted to her and to their five children. He was a despot, given to thoughtful and generous acts. He was filled with self-pity, and his courage and energy were inexhaustible. Virtually every day as he roamed the world he poured advice, reprimand, and encouragement on his newspaper staff, all of its sparkling with the quality of the man. The superb biography does full justice to its extraordinary subject
