In 1927, Dr. Seuss landed a New York City job with Judge magazine, a weekly satire coveted for its full-color political cartoons. Ted’s unique artistic vision captured the attention of several leading magazines as he went on to create five front covers for Judge alone. The magical middle ground between Ted’s first professionally published cartoon in 1927 and the publication of his first children’s book in 1937 occurs on the June 1933 cover of Judge. Here you not only witness a illustrator hitting his artistic stride on the way to becoming America’s most successful children’s book author, but you also get a preview of his beloved repertoire of bestiary to come.
