Gerberg at The New School Tonight; Another New Cartoonist at The New Yorker; An Early Sidney Harris Collection

A reminder that long-time New Yorker cartoonist, Mort Gerberg will be speaking at The New School this evening. All the details here.

Mr. Gerberg’s entry on Ink Spill’s “New Yorker Cartoonists A-Z”:

Mort Gerberg Born, March 11, 1931, New York, NY.  NYer work: April 10, 1965 – .  Co-edited, with Ron Wolin & Ed Fisher,  The Art in Cartooning: Seventy-five Years of American Magazine Cartoons (Charles Scribner & Son, 1975).

____________________________________________________________________________

Earlier this month it was noted here that the work of two new cartoonists had been added to the magazine’s stable of cartoonists (Jeremy Nguyen and Alice Cheng). The number of new cartoonists added to The New Yorker’s stable of cartoonists  in 2017 is now  three.   The latest issue of the magazine, March 6, 2017 contains yet another new addition, Jim Benton.

Last year 16 new cartoonists were added (a record high). According to Ink Spill’s fairly reliable tally  of new cartoonists added since Bob Mankoff became cartoon editor in 1997 the total is now 128.  That number counts teams of cartoonists as one (sorry team members!).

___________________________________________________________________________

Following a discussion with a fellow cartoonist the other day about Sidney Harris’s cartoon collections, I went online to see if I could find a non-themed collection of his.  Mr. Harris has published a lot of  themed collections (his latest, 101 Funny Things About Global Warming is an anthology featuring his own work and the work of a number of his colleagues), but I could not recall what I think of as a standard collection, such as say Charles Addams’s Favorite Haunts.   In less than a few seconds the title shown here popped up. Pardon Me, Miss! was published by Dell in 1973 (his first cartoon appeared in The New Yorker in the issue of July 9, 1973).  The title will be added to Ink Spill‘s New Yorker Cartoonists Library.

Courtesy of Danny Shanahan, this promotional booklet (offered with new New Yorker subscriptions?) from 1995 has been added to Ink Spill‘s Library. Of the many promo booklets produced by The New Yorker I’d never seen this one until today. Shown are the cover, the introductory page and the list of cartoonists whose work is within (yes, Bruce Eric Kaplan’s middle name is spelled wrong).

An Ink Spill tradition continues with the posting of an Index for the Cartoons of the Year bookazine.   Why an Index you might ask.  Mostly because I always enjoyed seeing them in the magazine’s hardcover anthologies (the New Yorker‘s Cartoon Albums) and missed having an Index for these yearly bookazines (they started in 2010). I wouldn’t read too too much into the numbers of drawings you see listed for each cartoonist, but the Index itself is a reasonably good snapshot of the New Yorker‘s somewhat boisterous stable of cartoonists in these last few years.

You’ll see that few of the entries have a “(cc)” beside certain page numbers.  The “cc” refers to the Caption Contest.  So those particular drawings appeared on the magazine’s back page.  You might notice that there’s an asterisk next to Julia Wertz’s name.  That’s because her name does not appear on the list of contributing cartoonists found on page 4 of the bookazine. She is, however, included on the Contributors page (p.2).

And here you go:
