Fave Book Cover (and Book) of the Week: Buzzi & Steinberg
Liza Donnelly recently traveled to the west coast of Italy where she was presented with an award from the Museo della Satira d della Caricatura. She returned home with a box of cartoon books published over there. Among them was the book above, Aldo Buzzi & Saul Steinberg: Un’ Amicizia Tra Letteratura, Arte E Cibo (Credito Valtellinese, 2015). The book’s cover shows Steinberg at the wheel with Mr. Buzzi in the back seat. The photo is dated 1960. It’s a terrific little book (7″ x 10″) packed with photos of Steinberg and company, as well as a lot of the master’s drawings, constructions, and illustrated letters.
On first seeing the book, I couldn’t help but think of this photo of another iconic artist in a car. Those are Bob Dylan’s feet sticking out of the Rolls Royce.
