Coming this Fall: The Big New Yorker Book of Dogs; Lorenz book jacket illustration from the late 60s

Posted on 25th February 2012 in News

From Random House this November 13th, The Big New Yorker Book of Dogs.  Scant information on this, other than that it will be 304 pages, and hardcover.  No cover posted as yet.

 

 

From the I Didn’t Realize I Had This Til Yesterday Dept.: while shifting books around I came across this 1968 Douglass Wallop novel (Wallop is perhaps best known for writing The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant, which later became the hit play, Damn Yankees). The cover illustration is by Lee Lorenz, who in a matter of five years would become the New Yorker’s Art Editor, succeeding James Geraghty.
