A monumental, two-volume slipcased collection featuring nearly a century’s worth of New Yorker cartoons
The New Yorker Encyclopedia of Cartoons is a slip-cased, two-volume, A to Z collection of cartoons by the magazine’s artists from 1924 to the present. Bob Mankoff – for two decades the cartoon editor of the New Yorker – has organized nearly 3,000 cartoons into more than 300 categories of recurring New Yorker themes and visual tropes, including cartoons on banana peels, meeting St. Peter, being stranded on a desert island, snowmen, lion tamers, Adam and Eve, the Grim Reaper – and dogs vs cats, of course. The result is hilarious and Mankoff’s commentary throughout adds both depth and whimsy. New Yorker editor David Remnick contributes a foreword.
This is a stunning gift for the millions of New Yorker readers and anyone looking for some humour in the evolution of social commentary.
