Product Description

Billionaires and Butterfly Ballots, A 20-Year Palm Beach ‘Cartoonspective’ by Palm Beach Daily News editorial Cartoonist David Willson

What do billionaires millionaires snowbirds gold diggers Bernard Madoff feral cats broken bridges Donald Trump pet pigs xenophobes Jimmy Buffett hurricanes Rush Limbaugh Butterfly Ballots Ferraris purse dogs  Epicureans comatose iguanas Lilly Pulitzer and political pit stops have in common?

Palm Beach!

This wealthy island’s present-day reputation for salacious scandals, hapless elections’ supervisors and boisterous demagogs stands in contrast to its refined past. Fortunately, the Palm Beach Daily News, a newspaper whose subscription list rivals the Social Register, hired David Willson as its first and only editorial cartoonist 20 years ago. He was on hand when battalions of Butterfly Ballot-chasing litigators invaded Flori-duh and for many other infamous Palm Beach brouhahas. But that’s just part of the story. Oh, those wacky one-percenters! You have no idea! At least, you won’t until you’ve read this book.

    In the past twenty years, Palm Beach has seen its share of salacious scandals and scoundrels. David Willson, political cartoonist for the Palm Beach Post, has managed to encapsulate the best of High Society’s foibles and frippery with his incisive wit and well-crafted illustrations.
    His look at Palm Beach society in this twenty year retrospective is at times hilarious, at times irreverent, but always entertaining. His book Billionaires and Butterfly Ballots is a must have addition to anyone’s library who has lived on the island or visited this enclave of the rich and famous.

    I was lucky enough to get a signed copy from David, through a complicated series of events, where I no doubt ripped him off. I loved the art, the captions, and most of all, the fun that I had reading about the wonderful foibles and unusual people that inhabit/visit Palm Beach. Someday, when I am done ripping people off and have made my millions, I think that Palm Beach will be the place for me… Thanks again David!
