Zim’s Correspondence School of Cartooning, Comic Art and Caricature Volume 1
Lesson Books Nos. 1-5 (1914 revised 1920)

The Zim Cartooning Course consists of twenty 32-page books packed with artwork, practical advice, homespun philosophy and plain old horse sense. Every month a new book would arrive in the mail, and the student would be responsible for arranging to ship their completed assignments to Horseheads, NY where Zim would review and critique them for a small fee. These books are among the rarest and most sought after cartooning instruction books in existence.
