A Lot of Searle on Attempted Bloggery

Attempted Bloggery has turned its attention to various Ronald Searle materials (books, auction items, etc.). See it all here.

Mr. Searle’s entry on the Spill‘s A-Z:

Ronald Searle (pictured above) Born, Cambridge, England March 3, 1920. Died, December 30, 2011, Draguignan, France. Steven Heller, who wrote Searle’s obit for The New York Times (Jan 4, 2012) said Searle’s “outlandishly witty illustrations for books, magazine covers, newspaper editorial pages and advertisements helped define postwar graphic humor…”

New Yorker work (including covers and cartoons): November 12, 1966 – August 19, 2002. An interesting tribute site: ronaldsearle.blogspot.com/ Searle’s wiki entry: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ronald_Searle
