It will come as no surprise to Ink Spill visitors that I enjoy lists. “The New Yorker Cartoonists A-Z” on this site being one example — the Spill‘s “New Yorker Cartoonists Library” being another. I’ve been a fan of Chris Wheeler’s great website for years (he has been a generous contributor to the Spill’s archive). Here are two links for New Yorker cartoon afficianados who like things orderly. James Peterson has posted a list of New Yorker books (collections of cartoons) as well as a list of New Yorker artists.
About the photo above: I don’t usually stack the Spill‘s collection of New Yorker Albums like that — it would be criminal to do so. This was a one-time thing. After photographing them, I returned the albums to the safety of a horizontal shelf. If the New Yorker publishes an anthology to celebrate the magazine’s 100th birthday in 2025 — and I can’t imagine they won’t — I’ll momentarily pile up the albums again and add the new book on the bottom.

This particular post, looking at the issue of July 7, 1928, is chock full of cartoons, and as usual, so much more (there’s also a much appreciated shout-out to the Spill). Read it here.
From newyorker.com‘s Culture Desk, July 29, 2016 “Live-Drawing Hillary’s Historic Convention” — Liza Donnelly’s graphic account of her four days at the Democratic Convention.
As mentioned earlier this week on the Spill, Ms. Donnelly spent the week embedded with CBS News in Philadelphia, drawing on-set, and in and around the convention hall. You can see some of her work here and a short video here. Also follow Ms. Donnelly on Twitter @lizadonnelly for her latest drawings.

From 1,001 Chicago Afternoons, July 27, 2016, “Cuties and The Englewood Cartoonist” this short piece on E. Simms Campbell. Here’s Mr. Cambell’s entry on Ink Spill’s A-Z:
