The Complete Cartoons of the New Yorker (2004)
by Robert Mankoff (Editor)
No current Talk conversations about this book.
Definitely more of a pick-and-skim/coffee table thing than a read through, but much fun all the same. Nifty slices of history, and comes with CDs of the same, which make for easy e-reading later. ( )
I'm just not a New Yorker. I don't appreciate Seinfield or Woody Allen either.
Book Description: New York, New York, U.S.A.: Black Dog & Leventhal Pub, 2004. Fine in Archival Plastic Cover. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. A handsome First Edition, First Printing
I had a great-aunt, sort of an Auntie Mame kind of woman. Sophisticated, funny, etc. I still remember visiting her in Warren,PA, and spending afternoons curled up in her library by the fireplace reading New Yorker cartoons. I felt very sophisticated. This book of New Yorker cartoons takes me back about 50 years and still makes me feel sophisticated.
What's not to like about this great book which can be looked on as a social history book? The cartoons themselves carry great commentary as to the times in which they were created.
