The New Yorker Encyclopedia of Cartoons Hardback
Edited by Bob Mankoff
The New Yorker Encyclopedia of Cartoons is a prodigious, slip-cased, two-volume, 1,600-page A-to-Z curation of cartoons from the magazine from 1924 to the present.
Bob Mankoff - for two decades the cartoon editor of the New Yorker - organizes nearly 3,000 cartoons into more than 250 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, of course.
The result is hilarious and Mankoff's commentary throughout adds both depth and whimsy.
The collection also includes a foreword by New Yorker editor David Remnick.
This is stunning gift for the millions of New Yorker readers and anyone looking for some humour in the evolution of social commentary.
