Draw Cartoons the 1920's way!

I came across this Flickr set today that hosts a series of scans from a 1923 book on cartooning titled "Tack's Cartoon Tips for the Aspiring Cartoonist" by B. Knight. It's a short book of only 29 pages and has some very quaint (ok, cheesey) text in the instructions, but the instructional examples of cartoon illustration are really spot on and give a great groundwork to anyone looking to get into drawing cartoons. I have always been a huge fan of this era in cartoon and comic art. I'm glad to have found this and I think it's pretty cool that something like this, long out of print, has gotten distributed online.
