An Accordian Brochure (And More) From The Past
Back in 1985, when The New Yorker celebrated its 60th anniversary there were big doings: a Cartoon Album published, and a huge show of art on display at The New York Public Library (the show went on tour following its New York debut).
The above brochure must’ve been available at the exhibit. My memory is that at the opening we were all given a bag that contained, among other things, the new Cartoon Album 1975-1985, a packet of postcards, and a poster of the exhibit featuring a Charles Addams drawing (the image was also used on one of the postcards included in the packet, shown left as well as on the gift bag).
More here about the 1975-1985 Album and the other brochure from the exhibit with (then) New Yorker Art Editor, Lee Lorenz’s essay.
