Cartoonists honour victims of Charlie Hebdo attack with new book

A group of cartoonists are crowdfunding for a book celebrating freedom of expression and to honour the victims of the Charlie Hebdo gun attack.

English PEN and the Professional Cartoonists Organisation have joinded forces to produce Draw the Line Here.

Various political cartoonists, including Independent cartoonist DaveBrown, Martin Rowson, Andrew Birch and Jeremy Banx have contributed. Gag cartoonists, illustrators and graphic designers all feature.

And half the proceeds will go to the funds supporting the families of the murdered cartoonists and their colleagues.

The Draw the Line Here campaign is live now on CrowdShed and will run until February 14.

Cartoonists Cathy Simpson and Simon Ellinas explain more.
