Seven New Yorker Cartoonists Walk Into a Book Barn
In my hundreds of visits to the always interesting Rodgers Book Barn in Hillsdale, New York I’d never walked in with six other New Yorker cartoonists…until yesterday. The Book Barn’s owner, Maureen Rodgers allowed us to sort of take over the place as we browsed and talked and generally hung out for an hour or so.
This group then moved on to the classic Martindale Diner, and eventually made its way to the Spill‘s world headquarters. Below is a photo of Danny Shanahan, Ken Krimstein, and Bob Eckstein looking at a copy of Charles Addams’ Groaning Board. And that’s Sam Gross looking at Peter Arno’s Parade.
