A Couple of Visual Primers: Thurber & Steinberg

Here are two Pinterest  destinations that are a fun way to start off this shortened work week.  During my usual morning Google search I came across “131 Best Images about Saul Steinberg”  and thought it funny that the page was “131 best images”  — “131” seemed very Steinbergian.  Also found:  “Best 25+ James Thurber Ideas” — surely Mr. Thurber had at least as many best ideas as Steinberg.  Oh well.

I really liked scrolling through these pages — they’re a quick way to brush up on, or be reinvigorated by, the fabulous graphic worlds of Steinberg and Thurber, while getting a sense of their iconic styles all across the graphic board: New Yorker cartoons (drawings), covers, book jackets, advertisements. And, bonus:  there are photographs as well.
