Overview

If you like inexpensive restaurants where the main course is Beluga caviar, radio stations that play nothing but your favorite hits, and airlines that automatically upgrade you to first class and never lose your luggage, forget it. There's no such thing. But here's a dream that actually comes true: The New Yorker 75th Anniversary Cartoon Collection, the biggest and funniest collection of New Yorker cartoons ever assembled. From the unforgettable classics to contemporary favorites, this rawing gallery of comic genius spans nearly the entire 20th century!

This satisfyingly bulky volume brings together the best of every New Yorker reader's favorite feature of his or her favorite magazine. Edited and introduced by New Yorker cartoon editor and no-slouch-himself cartoonist Bob "How about never -- is never good for you?" Mankoff, The New Yorker 75th Anniversary Cartoon Collection is a riotous panorama of three-quarters of a century of life, love, business, society, and human nature as seen by the most gifted comic artists on the planet -- Peter Arno, Charles Addams, Mary Petty, Roz Chast, William Steig, Jack Ziegler, and many more. Besides reminding us of how fresh the old favorites remain, The New Yorker 75th Anniversary Cartoon Collection unearths page after page of long-forgotten gems that startle us with their perspicacious commentary on the ever-changing world around us and the neverchanging ways we react to it, cope with it, and stumble or, occasionally, triumph over it.

The New Yorker 75th Anniversary Cartoon Collection is too thick to be Scotch-taped to the refrigerator or pinned on the bulletin board, but every one of these on-the-nose cartoons yields an insight that stays sharp -- and stays funny -- every time. The New Yorker's cartoons and its cartoonists are one of the great treasures of the century. Trusting their keen eye for the idiosyncrasies of people and the caprices of culture, we know we can rely on them to make us laugh, over and over again, as they reveal what we are really thinking about -- usually before we realize it ourselves.

Editorial Reviews

Jesse Oxfeld
[A] handsome collection...Mankoff is the magazine's cartoon editor, and for this retrospective he chose 707 classic images from the nearly 62,000 in the magazine's archive. He also penned a wittily self-deprecating introduction that explains how he selected them. You'll find work from every great New Yorker cartoonist here, from 18 Charles Addamses to 20 Jack Zieglers.

    An Excellent Collection

    This is a great collection of old and new Cartoons from the New Yorker magazine, which has always had the very best in topical and political cartoons. I have always felt that you can learn a lot about the history of the U.S. from well created cartoons.
