…The cover for the upcoming two volume New Yorker Encyclopedia of Cartoons  (due in October) has disappeared from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and the publisher’s website (Blackdog & Leventhal). In its place is the original image posted online, a temp, shown below left, carrying the text “Cover Not Final”. The final cover (or is it?) bearing an illustration (not a cartoon) appears below right.  Stay tuned.

New American Bystander Cover Revealed; Advertising Work by New Yorker Cartoonists, Pt. 23: Anatol Kovarsky; More Spills: A Blitt Book Party

New American Bystander Cover Revealed

Michael Gerber, publisher of The American Bystander has released the cover for issue #6.  Needless to say the art is by Arnold Roth (needless to say because he’s signed the art and  it could only be the work of Mr. Roth.  No one else draws like that).

If you love New Yorker cartoons, you’ll love the Bystander.

Go here to read more, to contribute to the Kickstarter campaign, to order a copy, and/or better yet, subscribe.

Here are three undated ads for an underwear company.
