As long as the subject of New Yorker Spot artists has come up  (with Mr. Bachtell’s work) here’s a little something from the Spill‘s archives:  Suzanne Suba was one of the very few  New Yorker spot artists to have her work collected in book form.  Below is an example of her art from the lovely little (4″x5″) book titled, Spots by Suba: From The New Yorker (E.P.
