“Indispensable… A transfixing study of American mores and manners that happens to incorporate boundless laugh, too.”
—Janet Maslin, The New York Times
“Cultural history at its wittiest.”—USA Today
“Not only a stand-up routine for smart people who own a coffee table, but a history of American culture.” —Time
A national best-seller, now with an introduction by Adam Gopnik, this hardcover edition, with DVD-ROM, of The Complete Cartoons of the New Yorker, includes every cartoon ever published in the magazine between 1925 and 2005—more than 70,000 of them! From the early cartoons of Peter Arno, George Price, and Charles Addams to the cutting-edge work of Alex Gregory, Matthew Diffee, and Bruce Eric Kaplan (with stops along the way for the genius of Charles Barsotti, Roz Chast, Jack Ziegler, George Booth, and many others), the art collected here forms, as David Remnick puts it in his Foreword, "the longest-running popular comic genre in American life."
