The first woman ever to win the Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartoons has become the first top-rank cartoonist to publish a print-on-demand compilation of her work.

Long a trailblazing cartoonist, Signe Wilkinson of the Philadelphia Daily News has now become a trailblazing author by publishing “One Nation, Under Surveillance,” a print-on-demand book featuring nearly 50 of her cartoons, as first seen in the Daily News and newspapers across the country.

Wilkinson is using Lulu (, the world’s fastest-growing provider of print-on-demand books, to publish the book in celebration of her 20th anniversary as editorial cartoonist at the Philadelphia Daily News.

The cartoons collected in “One Nation, Under Surveillance” ( comment on “life, liberty and the pursuit of privacy.”

The book’s publication is especially timely, given the current public debates over the Supreme Court nominations and the ongoing war on terror.
