Fave Photo of the Weekend: Two Giants of the New Yorker Cartoon World

Jim & FrankHere’s a previously unpublished photograph of two great New Yorker cartoonists: James Stevenson, on the left, and Frank Modell to the right. 

If you add up (as I have) their combined contributions to the magazine, the number is a whisker shy of an astounding 3,500 cartoons, covers, and written pieces. 

In 2013, Mr. Stevenson published  The Life, Loves and Laughs of Frank Modell, a celebratory book about his best friend. The book is a delight

[My thanks to James Stevenson, Josie Merck, and Frank Modell for permission to use the photograph, which looks to be from the 1970s or early 1980s]
