John Cuneo‘s Not Waving But Drawing has just been published by Fantagraphics.

From the publisher:

You know John Cuneo from his award-winning illustrations that have graced the pages of Esquire or the covers of The New Yorker, but less known is the kinds of over-the-top and hilariously perverse cartoons that fill the pages of Not Waving But Drawing. Assembling Cuneo’s best privately drawn sketchbook pages, each page immediately introduces us to unique takes on sex and domestic life in his signature squiggly style. Not Waving But Drawing is full of dark thoughts, lightly rendered. Full-color illustrations throughout

 

Barry Blitts  Blitt is due in October from Riverhead.

From the publisher:
This lavish full-color collection showcases over a quarter century of Blitt’s most iconic work: his New Yorker covers, from the infamous Obama fist bump and George W. Bush’s drowning cabinet to the many misadventures of Donald Trump; his long-running collaboration with Frank Rich for New York Times op-ed page; and his illustrations for Vanity Fair, Time, Entertainment Weekly, and others. Blitt also shares his sketchbooks, drafts, and unpublished art, offering readers an exclusive view into the creative process of one of the foremost political cartoonists of our time. 
 
Featuring annotations from the author, more than 100 never-before-seen sketches and drafts, and original essays from Blitt’s collaborators and peers, this book is both a visual delight and a fascinating trip into the mind of a truly original artist.
