Isabelle Cardinal was commissioned to illustrated this article for the Boston Globe Book Review. ‘Burning down the House: Newt Gingrich, the fall of a Speaker, and the Rise of the New Republican Party.’

The illustration depicts the book review … ‘Bonfire of the Republicans, looking back at the incendiary politics.” Gingrich is holding a match and a mallet that is actually a box of matches, says it all.
