An Arnie Levin Interview
In this latest installment of Gil Roth’s remarkable string of interviews with cartoonists and illustrators, he speaks with the great Arnie Levin, whose drawings and covers are in league with some of the best the New Yorker has published. Below: a classic Levin drawing from the issue of October 5, 1998.

This book is probably the most tattered in the Spill‘s cartoon library, but it is also one of the most treasured. While browsing the humor sections of used bookstores I’ve a habit of looking at every cartoon collection on the shelf (or shelves), no matter the condition, and no matter whether or not I already have a copy at home — you never know what might be inside. In this case, the surprise was an original signed drawing by James Stevenson. The collection, Sorry, Lady — This Beach Is Private! was published by Macmillan in 1963.
