Pictorial images, usually drawings, that are humorous or that use wit and satire to comment on contemporary events, social habits, political trends, or other topical subjects, often executed in a broad or abbreviated manner. Originally referred to full-page illustrations in a circulating paper or periodical, especially when comical and relating to current events.
Pictorial works produced by transferring images by means of a matrix such as a plate, block, or screen, using any of various printing processes. When emphasizing the individual printed image, use "impressions." Avoid the controversial expression "original prints," except in reference to discussions of the expression's use. If prints are neither "reproductive prints" nor "popular prints," use the simple term "prints." With regard to photographs, prefer "photographic prints"; for types of reproductions of technical drawings and documents, see terms found under "reprographic copies."
