The New Yorker Encyclopedia of Cartoons

The New Yorker Encyclopedia of Cartoons

A Semi-serious A-to-Z Archive

This monumental 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 is the most ingenious collection of New Yorker cartoons published in ebook form, The New Yorker Encyclopedia of Cartoons is a prodigious 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. The collection also includes a foreword by New Yorker editor David Remnick. Perfect for the millions of New Yorker readers and anyone looking for some humor in the evolution of social commentary.
