Our good friend over at Attempted Bloggery has two posts tied-in to The New Yorker’s 90th anniversary. Go look!
As part of the New Yorker’s 90th anniversary celebration, its website has been posting decade-by-decade slide shows of cartoons. They’re now up to 1965 through 1975. The above, by Mischa Richter, appeared in the magazine May 23, 1970.
Above: The New York Times front page notice of Peter Arno’s passing. To the right: his last New Yorker drawing, captioned “Oh grow up!” was finished a few months before he died.
