Continuing on from yesterday’s post, pictured above is Our Own Baedeker from The New Yorker (Simon & Schuster, 1947). Carl Rose supplied ten maps and one hundred and eighty illustrations. The written pieces all ran during World War II.
Regular visitors to Ink Spill might well ask, “Why these posts of ancient material all of a sudden?” The answer is that we seem to be in a summer slump of news and events ( if anyone knows of any New Yorker cartoon/cartoonist news and events, please share). With nothing doing news-wise, I’ve decided to climb back up into our cluttered cartoon attic and drag a few items out into the light. If you wish to see other things posted over time, please visit the attic.
