What we have here in our upcoming book Cork High and Bottle Deep is a whole bunch of hilarious and surreal gag cartoons about booze — the acquisition thereof, the consumption thereof, the effects thereof — from the mid-20th century by the prolific and popular Virgil Partch, known by his signature "Vip." You don't see many businessmen in fedoras or bartenders wearing bow ties these days, but intoxication is a timeless topic and these panels will still have you falling off your barstool decades after their creation.
You can read about 18 of them in our downloadable excerpt, which includes sections of Vip's themed series on hangovers and "Dr. Freud's Cocktail Party" (in color!). The book should be available toward the end of June so make some space on your shelf next to your Mad Men DVDs and pre-order today.
