$800 Deluxe Edition: The New Yorker Encyclopedia of Cartoons A Semi-serious A-to-Z Archive

The New Yorker Encyclopedia of Cartoons: A Semi-serious A-to-Z Archive :

This monumental, two-volume, slip-cased collection includes nearly 10 decades worth of New Yorker cartoons selected and organized by subject with insightful commentary by Bob Mankoff and a foreword by David Remnick.

“…the most ingenious collection of New Yorker cartoons published in book form, 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. 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.”

It will be available October 2, 2018 and will cost $100.


But for the well-heeled there is a Deluxe Edition. It is:

“…a limited printing of 1,000 copies, this Deluxe edition of THE NEW YORKER ENCYCLOPEDIA OF CARTOONS features 3 signed, numbered limited edition prints in individual portfolios, one each by famed artists Robert Mankoff, Bruce Eric Kaplan, and Roz Chast. “

Also available October 2, 2018, but this Deluxe Edition goes for $800.00.
