Cartoning for Peace is pleased to be one the four charities of the book “Toon In!” by Michel Payne, former Director of the IOC and longtime Olympic commentator.
Michael Payne today published “Toon In!” a uniquely insightful book, which uses captivating cartoons to help reveal the extraordinary story behind the modern Olympic Games.
A collector of Olympic political cartoons, Michael has pulled together more than 1,200 Olympic- themed cartoons, accompanied by a personal 100,000-word commentary, to produce a one-of-a-kind, 500 page, very large coffee table book.
Published on 50 days to go to Tokyo 2020, “Toon In!” is a unique compendium of the wicked humour, visual genius and cutting insight of 400 of the world’s greatest cartoonists. They take no prisoners as they wield their razor-sharp quills and hurl their acid wit at the Olympic Games, and all things Olympic. The total profits from the book will be pledged to four charities and special causes: Back Up Trust, Peace and Sport, and Yunus Sports Hub and Cartooning for Peace.
