Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread
Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

Clemenceau the Vampire

Recently, I ran an image of an over-the-top piece of war propaganda, Louis Raemaeker's cartoon, "Seduction."  Here's another extreme cartoon, this one from the period of the Paris Conference  published in the German magazine Kladderadatsch  that is unsigned. It's titled "Clemenceau, the Vampire."


  1. A better scan of this cartoon can be seen at The University of Heidelberg has the full run of Kladderadatsch scanned as well many other good WWI era illustrated periodicals.

    The artist is Arthur Johnson. His father was American, but he was raised in Germany.

  2. That's fascinating. Nosferatu is 1922, and this is that final scene.
