DRAW THE LINE HERE: CARTOONISTS RESPOND TO THE CHARLIE HEBDO KILLINGS

drawthelinehere

Draw the Line Here: Cartoonists respond to the Charlie Hebdo killings. Cartoons for the families of the victims of the Charlie Hebdo attacks, and in support of free speech.

English PEN is delighted to announce the publication of Draw The Line Here, a collection of cartoons drawn in response to the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris in January 2015.

The book is a collaboration between the Professional Cartoonists’ Organisation (PCO), Crowdshed, and English PEN. It features cartoons drawn by British artists in the days immediately after the attacks. The work of 66 cartoonists is featured, including Steve Bell, Dave Brown, Martin Rowson, Peter Brooke and Ralph Steadman.

hebdocharlie11Proceeds from the book will be split equally between the fund for the victims of the Charlie Hebdo murders, and English PEN’s Writers at Risk programme.

Production of the book was made possible by a crowd-funding campaign launched in February. Over 200 people pledged their support to the project, and will be receiving their copies of the book in the coming days.

Draw The Line Here includes a foreword by Libby Purves, patron of the PCO, who writes:
Some cartoons here are gentle, others savage; some merely encapsulate the bafflement and sadness of a world where mockery is met not with the proper response, a shrug, but with murder. Again and again the theme is of the fragility of the sceptical, laughing pencil: its simplicity and its splendour, the opposite of the vainglorious, meaningless squalor of the gun and the bomb.

Jo Glanville, director of English PEN, said:
We are extremely grateful to the PCO and to Crowdshed for choosing English PEN as a beneficiary of this project, and of course to all the cartoonists who have contributed to the book. By exercising their own right to freedom of expression, these artists are helping to defend the free speech of others.

The publication of this book could not be more timely. Sunday 3 May is World Press Freedom Day, the perfect time to stand in solidarity with Charlie Hebdo.

Draw The Line Here may be purchased online at: www.englishpen.org/campaigns/draw-the-line-here

Supporters to the Crowdfunding campaign will receive their copies in the coming days

Books cost UK £15.00 each. UK delivery is £2.00 and international delivery is £4.00.
