I Only Read It for the Cartoons

32.00

Available for the first time to "The New Yorker" s one million-plus readers: a volume dedicated to the individual careers of the magazine s cartoon superstars. Widely considered to be the pantheon of single-panel cartooning, "The New Yorker" cartoonists styles are richly varied, and their personal stories are surprising. For example, did you know that Arnie Levin is a seventy-three-year-old former Beatnik painter with a handlebar mustache and a back decorated by Japan s foremost tattoo artists? Gehr s book features fascinating biographical profiles of such artists as Gahan Wilson, Sam Gross, Roz Chast, Lee Lorenz, and Edward Koren. Along with a dozen such profiles, Gehr provides a brief history of "The New Yorker" cartoon itself, touching on the lives and work of earlier illustrating wits, including Charles Addams, James Thurber, and William Steig."
