Happy 150th birthday to The Nation! (Get your free PDF copy)

Progressive political magazine The Nation just celebrated its 150 year anniversary, and last week, they issued 200+ page special anniversary issue with lots of articles and art from past, as well as from present. They are giving away the PDF version of the issue for free.
Regular illustration contributor and acclaimed political illustrator Steve Brodner acted as the special curator of illustration for this issue. The new artworks by Milton Glaser Art Spiegelman Marshall Arisman Mirko Ilic to name a few, are all featured in this issue. It is a huge honor Steve decided to assign me an image in this special issue, and this is my very first time contributing an image to The Nation.
The article I was given was an interesting take on looking at American politics through the looking glass of Alice in Wonderland (written by Ariel Dorfman).
