Cartoonists turn out in force for New Yorker Holiday Party; French New Yorker Cartoon Collection
A large number of cartoonists turned out for this year's Western-themed New Yorker Holiday Party, held last Monday night at a West 26th Street bistro. Some of those spotted in the crowd were Jack Ziegler, Victoria Roberts, Barbara Smaller, Liza Donnelly, Sam Gross, William Hamilton, Ariel Molvig, John O'Brien, Julia Suits, Robert Leighton, Carolita Johnson, Arnie Levin, Glen Le Lievre, Matthew Diffee, Andy Friedman, Farley Katz, Marshall Hopkins, Zach Kanin, Drew Dernavich, Jonny Cohen, and Bob Mankoff.
Published in 2007, "The New Yorker Les Dessins Inedits" edited and with an introduction by Jean-Loup Chiflet, is a handsome volume that appears, at first glance, to be a miniature version of the popular Complete Cartoons of The New Yorker, but it's not. It's a brand new collection, with a different mix of contributors than the Complete Cartoon book. All captions have been translated into French.
